Swap Sneak Peek

Next month is

Artistic Affaire Moulin Rouge.

I have been busy getting ready and finishing up my swaps.  I signed up for 3 and I'm done with two……..the third I’m hostessing. 

Sooo until I have everyone's pieces that one won’t be done.   I'm sure I will be rushing around at the last minute trying to get that one done, but at least the other 2 are complete!

One of the swaps I'm in is a pillow with a vintage suitcase pocket.

I did a Citrasolv transfer onto a linen fabric using a Graphics Fairy image.  She also has a tutorial on her blog showing how to do the Citrasolv transfer. 

I really like how it turned out and I hope my partner does too.  Im excited to see what she made for me.


The next swap I signed up for is a 7 x 4 piece to go in a banner…….9 of them. 

Since the theme is Moulin Rouge, I found this cool vintage can can girl image and dressed her up a bit.


Then I made these cute lace bags (that also have a Citrasolv transfer) to put them in. 


I tea dyed the bags………..I can never leave things as they are. 

I just love the tea dyed look…….so into the tea they went.  

Here is picture showing before and after the they were tea dyed.


I just love the way you can instantly….well almost….make something look old by dipping it in tea. 

This is the backside of my banner.


I tied on a Can Can Girl Moo card that I had made especially for this Moulin Rouge event. 

I like to put them on my swaps ….I just love those little Moo cards and made a whole assortment of Moulin Rouge themed ones!! 



All packaged up and ready to go.


I'm getting so excited……I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas. 

A little more than a month to go…… I need my Can Can Girl outfit.
