B is for Baby!

Hiya crafty friends! It's a gorgeous Tuesday here if you ignore the frost on the windows. The sun is shining and should melt all that off shortly, right? Tonight we're going to a baseball game and will definitely bundle up!

Here's a project made with Graphic 45's Little Darlings. It's the sweetest paper line I've seen in ages! I originally intended to use my papier mache A B C letters for another project but was inspired in another direction. Got to go with the muse, eh?

Don't let that floating eyeball in the bottom hole scare you. It's just a sweet little one!

Don't you just love this flower extravaganza? Yummy. The laces are all vintage tatting found whilst rummaging through antique shops or as a gift from my fabby sister. She knows exactly how to make me giddy!

The B is 9" tall and covered with papers from the 12x12 Little Darlings pad. The back is covered with the sheet called "Little Darlings", on which the front has the baby face peeking through to the front. It worked out perfectly! The satin finish comes from matte Modge Podge and edges are inked in Distress "Gathered Twigs". The pins are handmade by me.

I sort of feel like this still needs a little something, but I'm not sure what it is yet. I will put small feet on it to balance it out. It's a little top-heavy and will fall over with the tiniest of touches, thanks to the lace on the bottom.

She's a little darling! Thanks for visiting today. I hope you have a creative day!
