I am so excited for this week’s link party! As promised last week, it is brought to you by not one, but FIVE blogs! That’s five times the exposure for YOU! 🙂
So without further ado, let me introduce the lovely ladies that are co-hosting my party!
Randi @ Sowdering About
Heather @ Frugal Fit Family
Shannon @ Bella Caiden
Britney @ The Princess & Her Cowboys
Please be sure to visit their blogs and WELCOME them as co-hosts!
Here’s how it works: when you link up on one blog, it will show up on ALL FIVE BLOGS! That’s a lot of extra exposure for you. Also, since there are five co-hosts, there will be five features each week! Not only will the features be shown on each blog, but they will be posted to all five Facebook pages, and on our collective Pinterest board. Are you as excited as I am?!
You may recognize 2 of the co-hosts names. That’s right! They are fellow contestants in this year’s One Crafty Contest! Randi won 2 rounds in a row! A HUGE congratulations to her!! And Shannon is in the final 3 with me!! Awesome! This is a perfect testament to just how friendly the bloggy world is. These ladies did not become rival enemies of mine, but instead, wonderful bloggy friends! I am so happy they are joining me for this party!
Speaking of the One Crafty Contest… VOTING once again starts today and ends tomorrow (Tuesday) at noon EST. This is the final round of crafts. We had to use burlap this week. Please be sure to come back WEDNESDAY to vote one last time for your favorite over-all crafter to determine the winner!
You can read all about my participation in the contest and see my past entries HERE.
Last week we had to use paper in our craft. Like I’ve already mentioned, I’ve made it into the top 3! WOW! I did not expect that!
“Paper! There’s so much you can do with paper. I had a hard time deciding, but finally settled on my Paper Boutique. I made a two-part silicone mold and filled it with paper clay I made from scratch to create the three dress forms. The base of each dress form is also made from paper clay. I assembled them with dowels and started working on my dresses.
I wore out my paper punch on the dress on the left. Each butterfly was hand placed and glued. I made a paper flower for the belt by cutting out and shaping each petal. I made a small paper purse to match.
The middle dress has several paper layers for the skirt, and a little bit of tulle. I paper mached the bodice on and added braided tulle for the belt. This dress was accessorized with a homemade ‘pearl’ necklace.
The right dress was made by layering A LOT of leaves I punched out and gluing each one in place. This bodice is also paper mache. I added a bright necklace to match.
When the dresses were done, I made a storefront complete with a paper banner that says ‘Boutique’.
The child in me had a lot of fun dressing up the dress forms!”
