"Cute and Girly" challenge Mid month reminder

Popping by to remind you that the theme of this months challenge at By the Cute and Girly is

                                      Cute and Girly

Could it be any easier!

This month we are sponsored by Saturated Canary and the winner will get two of Krista's beautiful digis! Details of the challenge HERE

Well, I always try to make something different, craftwise, for my mid-month make.  Something that isn't card because despite By the Cute and Girly being an all-crafts challenge most of the entries are cards (nothing wrong with cards btw!)
So as its January and lots of us are tidying up I decided to use up all (well, some of) the scraps that have been lying around in my bits boxes.  (Sometimes the entire house turns into a Bits box......) and make something that would remind me to keep on track, crafting-wise, during 2013.  Here's the result - a Girly canvas wall hanging made entirely from left overs

First I sewed scraps of paper together with my sewing machine..

One side..

Other side which I decided to use.  Next I gave it 2 coats of very watered down acrylic paint; 1st coat was pale blue, 2nd was pale pink.  Then I stamped tiny butterflies and flowers randomly with purple Versamark ink.

Close up of some of the details including left over inchies.

Do you see the arrow heading into 2013? (more machine stitching)
Yes, it is a bit grungy and all over the place - everyone else on the Cute and Girly DT has used a Saturated Canary digi for their mid-month make so I might be shot!

January "Cute and Girly" challenge

Happy New Year everybody!
At By the Cute and Girly we have a lovely easy January challenge for you, just make something 

                            Cute and Girly!

This month we are sponsored by Saturated Canary and the winner will get two of Krista's beautiful digis! Each member of the DT got a Saturated Canary digi to play with - you can see the results and the details of the challenge HERE

I choose "Blanche" because she looks as if she has got all dolled up and is slinking off to a New Year's party with some devilment in mind...
Made an almighty mess of cutting out the space between her arms and dress so I gave her a little gold net wrap to hide the damage! Backing is an Anya's oval die cut and the flowers are from my stash with some Fruit Punch stickles added to her dress and flowers.

To see more wonderful Saturated Canary digis just look Here
Wishing everyone many happy hours of crafting during 2013.
