PINK SATURDAY

Since I pulled a lot of pink supplies out to photograph for last week's Pink Saturday, I figured I might as well make something with them all! This is the beginning parts assembled for a vintage style tussie-mussie display cone. There is lots of vintage pink crepe paper ruffles and fringes and pleats, pink silk and organza ribbons, pink velvet roses and pink paper dusted with diamond German glass glitter...and just enough mint green to keep the viewer from getting sugar poisoning. In this photo they are all sitting and drying from their applications of glues and glitters and sprays. To see the finished product, just scroll down 3 posts to my Flea Market Friday post ... the finished piece is there. It's also in my Etsy shop.

I did want to mention two blogger events that many of my readers might be very interested in! The first event is hosted by Ingrid at Fashion is My Muse blog. She is having a tea party, with photos of everybody's tea party hat! She even posted a wonderful instruction sheet for creating origami style hats - and a few examples of miniature ones that she created! How fun! If you haven't learned about her blog yet, make sure you visit! Her art work is gorgeous - and her eye for beautiful historical fashion is unerring. Visit her blog at the link above, and let her know you'll be there! I'm thinking perhaps a crown inspired hat for this may be in the works!

The next blogging event that is going to be great fun is the Carnival Soiree, hosted by Lisa Kettell (author of the fabulous, just-released "Altered Art Circus" book). Just a few of the things she has told us to expect are -Carnival Tea, Games, Tokens, Giveaways consisting of my collage cd: Circus Follies and an altered poker chip kit, Free Circus images/ephemera, Carnival party pictures, Circus projects, and Stories. Now that sounds like a real event, doesn't it?! Click on the banner below to sign up and learn more about it.
Lisa also has another blog that I'm sure you'll enjoy browsing through. Visit Faerie Enchantment, and tell her Tristan sent you! She makes such really fun little treasures and it's well worth the visit!

Now I'm off to visit all the other bloggers participating in Pink Saturday. Enjoy your Saturday! Make some art, make something fun, make something delicious, make something sparkling, make a big ol' mess!

Your comment about the cigar box purse at French Cupboard had me snickering! You're so fun. Glad to see you were able to make some use of all your pink supplies. My stuff tends to sit in pretty, messy piles. :) Blessings... Polly

At first, I thought it was a party hat :) It turned out just lovely!

I have been in a "Mad Hatter" mood lately since I have been scouring the internet looking for inspiration for an Alice in Wonderland Tea Party. Thanks so much for the suggestions!

Happy Pink Saturday!

I loved the last few words of your post..."make a big ol'mess!" Sounds like fun.

Your tussie mussie turned out very well. A beautiful use of pink.

Have a wonderful Pink Saturday!

What a great selection of pinks. Glad you joined Friday Flea Market. I almost put some of my older Somerset magazines in my post. Looks like they were a hit. Lovely pics for FFM.

Welcome and Happy Pink Saturday.

Hey Tristan!
I loved the way the tussie mussie turned out!

I believe that one of my blogger beauties, Jenn from Sweet Eye Candy Creations is in the Altered Art Circus book. I just love to look at everyone's creations. And you are so right...mint green is just the right throw in color to keep the sugar at bay!

Sheila T said...

I really like your blog, and I especially like your last sentence! I'm afraid that making "a big ol' mess" is what I do best. Thanks for your comment on my first Pink Saturday!

MyThoughtsMyVoice said...

I saw your finished product. Isn't it nice to have raw materials and then with your creative mind make up something and turn it into something really beautiful? :-)

Yes I was gonna make new ones (paper stars) and was planning to show the "how-tos" but decided to do that on a separate post instead when I get a hold of that special paper :-)

faerie enchantment said...
