July local “what do U see”…girls just wanna have fun…

Fran Podlesney’s cereal box tag called me this month from her bag of goodies…

I decided to go a little different way with her china doll image (not quite 5.5″ tall 13.97cm) by scanning it and printing out three smaller versions (each about 3″ tall 7.62cm)…

I was pleased with how the yellow and green ‘ruffle’ turned out at the bottom…

that was a piece of paper towel that Fran had wrapped a tiny glass bottle in…

the dotted pattern of the towel showed up nicely when inked…

I cut the string of “pearls” apart and put them in the glass bottle sealing the top with string and beeswax…

I added some pretty dotted fabric from my stash to the back of the tag…

can’t wait to see all of Fran’s tags together …

les filles veulent s’amuser = girls just wanna have fun in every language

also can’t wait to show you the wonderful smooshed tin Linda Yeatman made for me

  2. That is so very cute, Patty! I did my first collage this weekend. I had loads of fun but it has way too much pink!!! I am trying to think of what to do next…besides save is for Pink Saturday 😉


  3. Patty; you are brilliant! Love the way you decided to use the doll! And; the ruffles are awesome. Wonderful! xxoo


  4. Simply amazing! At first I thought the original was a Charlotte doll, then read it again that it was an image of the doll. Really enjoyed how you married the cupcake holder to both sides of the tag. Simply stunning. But I want to know how you got those very evenly spaced yellow stripes in the paper towel.


  5. This is really cute and I just love the theme,so summer!
