Hello and welcome! It's Thursday and time for me to play along with the fun new challenge over at Mo's Challenge Blog. This week the theme is "D is for...". I had to think for a while. I have to admit I couldn't come up with any embellishments that started with "d", although I'm not sure how hard I thought about it. "Dancer" is what I came up with and it was so fitting as I just purchased lil ballerina. She is such a cutie and I was looking for a chance to color her up!
See what I mean? Isn't she adorable? I colored her with my Prismacolor pencils and added lots of pink Stickles to her tutu. I also added glossy accents to her barrettes. See the shading behind her? Oh yes, that's covering up a huge mistake! After adding the Stickles I proceeded to grab the image and smudge the glitter completely across the image, smearing the black ink. I could not believe it. I grabbed a tissue and wiped off the glitter but the smudge wasn't going anywhere. The whole image was done. I did not want to start over so I grabbed my grey pencils and started shading. I think if you don't know of my blunder you won't notice anything....I hope.
An ornament? Sure, why not. Was I nuts? Yes, I was. I had one piece of this sweet pink paper. I cut my strips, scored and started folding. Yes, the score lines are too close together. I am not ashamed to tell you I fought with this medallion for an hour. AN HOUR!!! Both my girls came to help. There is more hot glue in the center of this than I care to admit. Note to self: score lines should be 1/2" apart next time! I added a paper doily and pink and white tulle circles. I haven't pulled out my feathers in a while so I added those along with pearls and 12 pink silk ribbon roses (not the paper ones I usually use).
As I was going through my embellishment drawer I saw these roses. There reminded me of my little girl when she used to dance. Pink, satin roses seemed to have ballerina written all over them!
Here you can see the tulle. Again, they just say "ballerina".
I am entering my decoration (oooo, another "d" word!!) in the following challenges:

I think that's about it. Thanks for taking a peek!
