Joyeux Noel, Cherubs, Etc.

I've been designing.



I used a combo of one of my vintage Eiffel Tower images, vintage wrapping paper I forgot I had, and, I added Joyeux Noel.  I printed it all onto cardstock.




I'll be making signs, and I've already made one of my bags.  I didn't do the tattered thing with this one.  I wanted a neat look.




You'll notice that once I printed the image onto fabric, and dunked it in coffee, it mellowed.




I like it both ways, vibrant, and subdued.








I also created another clay cherub tag.




I've been molding roses,



and slightly distressed hearts.




Okay, seriously.  There is a downside to having too many ideas. I want to make a ton of each, but that's not going to happen.  Do you have a favorite?

I have furniture to finish too. See ya soon.
