First off, just want to say Thank You to all my blogging buddies who made such nice comments on my blog regarding Cirque Fini. Yes, it was a huge undertaking – a first for me and it was so fun to share it with you. You all inspire and sustain me.
My “Queen of Hearts” mini crown
Recently Donna O’Brien over at The Ribboned Crown decided to sell some of her lovely glittered crowns and other “Majestic Bits of Mishmash” as Donna calls them. I found Donnas blog and admired her work this summer. Many of you already know her regal creations. I absolutely love the way she combines Dresden trim with German glass glitter and a bit of frivolity. The effect is stunning.
Donna doesn’t sell online often so when she has a sale – you jump on it! I missed the sale which lasted approximately 2 days before she sold out. No surprise; her work is worth coveting.
Item#200 was my favorite – A little crown with a frozen charlotte doll on the front. My heart be still. Make sure you go over and take a look.
While cleaning out my craft room last Thursday night I found a few tiny pieces of Dresden scrap laying around and decided to try and ease my broken heart and make a mini crown in the same style.
The result was this teeny tiny “Queen of Hearts” crown. Not as elaborate as Donnas fabulous creations but sweet just the same. This one is only 3” high and 3” diameter and made from a laser cut cupcake holder that has been drenched in glitter. Although I love this style my heart kept wanting to add little paper flowers and other bobbles, I guess its hard to break your own habits. Don’t you think it looks divine on my porcelain cockatoo?
I always appreciate a style different than my own and I have great fun trying new things – I must say this was more difficult than I thought. As much fun as it was I think I will make another with the same laser cut as a base but add lots of little fairy flowers.
I hope Donna will have another sale soon, LOL!
Want to see some really beautiful pieces, check out Donnas Blog and make sure you have a drool cup with you.
Just another “pretty little thing” to share with you.
