Things do with bits of wedding dress lace

 Just returned from a weekend trip.  We drove down south Texas to "The Valley" in Edinburg to attend my niece's bridal shower.  Veronica (my sister's daughter) is getting married in October.  She saved some pieces of lace from the alterations done on her wedding dress and asked if I would do something "crafty" for her.  She hadn't asked for anything specific.  Left it up to me, yikes.
 
After much thought I decided, what else, but one of my dolls!  I didn't want a bride doll, but just a little raggedy doll with the lace on her dress.  I added the red heart with their initials and pearl embellishments.  There is ribbon and a lace flower on her hair.  The lace is beautiful with pearls and crystal beading.  The photo does not capture how beautiful the lace is.  I haven't seen the bride's dress, but I'm sure it is beautiful.


 With the little bit of lace left over I decided to try a little mixed media art or collage.  I first painted the canvas with gold glitter paint and then mod podged some pretty scrapbook paper that had love wording all over. I mod podged one of their engagement pictures and then used a mod podge for fabric to add the lace on one side.  I added their names and date of the wedding and glued on pearls here and there.  I also glued a silver heart by the date.

 And I'm very happy to report that she absolutely loved it!  
 
.  Now that I'm back I have just two days to craft before we hit the road again.  Going up north as far as Oklahoma for a few days.  Taking a mini vacation.  Until next time!  Take care.

Hugs,
