My Creative Space- Leaf Experiments

I've been working on my mother-daughter organza flowers a lot lately.

I've already confessed an addiction to making them.

Now I have to confess to yet another one....

It's the leaves...

I can't stop making those either.

I've been experimenting with different colours,  textures and sizes.

Different silks, denim, canvas, cotton, jersey and lace have all being given a go.

I have to admit to being slightly partial to the shantung silk but I do love them all.

These are the very latest version. Silk on denim.

I can't wait to see them fray....

Mermaids - New EuropeanStreetTeam Challenge

I am thrilled to be hosting the new European Team challenge this week!
The lovely Estella of StarOfTheEast has graciously turned over the honour of choosing the new theme to me, which I gladly accept.

So, without further ado, the new challenge theme is : Mermaids

This is a collection  of some beautiful vintage mermaids I found - for inspiration.

The rules for the challenge are simple.

1.You must be a member of the European Etsy Street Team.

2. Your entry must be a new creation inspired by the current theme.
No re-listings please.

Entries will be accepted until the 7th of August and the winner will be announced on the 8th of August.

The way you interpret the theme is according to your own taste, style and inspiration.

Maybe thinking of the deep blue sea, sparkling scales, seafoam, starfish , shells and other sea-creatures, female sirens and mythical beauties will help....

Just click on 'Mermaid Challenge- Entries' to link up your listing and join the challenge.
I hope you enjoy playing around with the theme.

I can't wait to see what you come up with.

I'll be posting some great etsy mermaid-inspired items in the next few days for even more inspiration.

My Creative Space -More Mother-Daughter Accessories

I've started a new batch of mother-daughter organza flowers:

You can see the bigger-smaller sizes here.

I'm so very happy with the outcome. I love the layers of colour and texture.

Now I have to decide on the centres.
And whether they will be corsages, headbands or sashes.....
