This is from a project one of the ASE gals presented us with. The spoons were her grandmother's; she and her siblings use to use them to play in the dirt! Despite their traumas, they are still beautiful! After doing just a wee bit of polishing, I bent the cup of the spoon up to hold the egg and mossy nest.

I knew right away how I wanted to make the canvas for my friend who loves the color lavender, and birds & bees. It came together very quickly (unusually for me!) And, thank the universe, my friend really likes it!

Thanks for looking ~

The incomparable BC presented masks for our April DIVAs project ~ this is how mine came out. As always, click to enlarge...

Tule, feathers, Lumiere paints, Stickles galore, ribbon, pearls, sequins...

I was going to get all fancy with the holding stick, but ended up not wanting to take attention away from the mask itself.
