Artwork in progress & a beautiful wedding ~

Can you tell what this is? A new project that I've started....and hopefully will be wonderful when I finish...well, we'll see!! This is the lid of a very old suitcase! It has seen better days and of course, you KNOW that I've saved the beautiful pocket, but have decided that the lid itself is a wonderful canvas ~ so, it being uneven and grubby I decided to give it a coat of liquid gesso ~ so we'll see if I can give it a little bit of a transformation ~

I bought this beautiful print a few years ago from a sweet friend of mine, she was having a sale and has the most wonderful taste. I've had it hanging in our master bath and decided to take it down, take the frame apart and make a few color copies of it!! I just took it to Staples and they were able to copy it being the size that it was. Now, I'm seeing it in this suitcase lid ~ with a backdrop of sheet music I think....hmm. We'll see ~

Another "little" project in the making....a paperclay snowman head! He's drying now so I can give him a little personality ~ Don't you think he would be a great gift to go along with the magazine giveaway???

A bit of inspiration for you....I love Deb's Curious Sofa blog ~ and I've always loved Elizabeth of Elizabeth House ~ well, Deb has taken pictures of Elizabeth's wedding!!! You have got to see her gorgeous dress created from what I believe is an antique table covering!
Just click HERE to see all of the photos Deb took of Elizabeth's wedding ~

Wishing you a peaceful, relaxing Sunday dear friends ~
xxoo, Dawn

That was a wonderful wedding...lots of ideas there for anyone to use at many gatherings. I loved the Edwardian outfits...way cool!

You have a great Sunday as well ... can't wait to see what happens to that suitcase lid.

Dawn, I love the snowman's FAT cheeks!
He's going to be adorable.

Can't wait to see what you do with the suitcase lid.

I still haven't finished my tri-cone project. Hoping to today. Finally found most of the embellishments.
Sometimes we just have to wait until we find the perfect accompaniment, don't we!

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Wow what a wedding! That dress was to die for and imagine that she designed it herself!

I see something magical and wonderful in the works in the suitcase lid. Love the print you chose to use and can't wait to see the outcome.
