Wedding Mystery Revealed

Despite aimlessly wandering around this house, lost without my Simba, I managed to finish my Wedding project yesterday.  Are ya'll ready?  This was a 2 part project.  A dress and a heart:


This is an angel shaped votive holder.  I meant to take a picture of the frame before I assembled it but with my little Simba being sick when I started the assembly process, I just forgot.

Here is the angel without the heart and without the glass candle holder:

The heart is just tied on so it's removable:

Here's the back:

Once I got the dress and the back on, I stuffed it with tissue paper so the dress didn't "crush" or cave in.  It also needed some weight so the tissue paper helped with that too.  I cute a piece of cardboard for the bottom, glued that on and then added felt.

I glued the vintage lace on to wings and halo and trimmed everything out with cream colored braided gimp.  It took quite awhile to assemble this because I could only do a little gluing at a time.  I used E6000 Jewelry glue to assemble the entire project.

This project was quite a challenge but I'm very pleased with out it came out!

In other news, I stopped at the dollar store yesterday for a few things and found these pretty little butterfly beads:


They're just little plastic butterflies but they're pretty.  If you have a Dollar Tree near you, stop in and pick up a pack.

Finally, I finished up on my little pink cat doll:


These never look like much of anything until I get them put together.  I don't feel like sewing at the moment but maybe later this week I can get my last couple of stitched pieces put together.

Pam, That is just beautiful. I would never have guessed that was what it was. You are a very talented lady.

OMG! Pam the angle is more than I ever dreamed...wow! I LOVE IT!!! I can't quit looking at it...I am sure Sarah is going to love it too! And for your followers; I picked up this angle at Goodwill...it was that bright shiny gold color...We were looking for a "memorial" candle for my daughters wedding and I had asked Pam to make one but she wasn't sure how to...then I found this piece and had my husband spray paint it white and sent it to Pam and asked her to use her amazing imagination and create something beautiful...WHICH SHE DID AND THEN SOME!!! My daughters wedding is in November, a fall wedding with fall colors...this piece will be placed on the alter and a votive placed in the glass votive holder the angle is holding and we will light a candle in memory of Sarah's grandparents who have passed and won't be at her wedding. AGAIN...GREAT JOB PAM!! I can't wait to give this to Sarah at her bridle shower in August.

Hi. I just stopped by to see what you are up to. The angel is very pretty and unique. I especially liked her after you added the heart.

Be well.

XX, Carol

This is a very special piece. How brave of you to use glue for the wings. When I use some it gets everywhere, except where it is meant to be.

I never would have guessed!! This is absolutely stunning Pam - too bad you couldn't find a source for the angel and make some more. I'm sure lots of brides or angel collectors would be thrilled to own one of these. Beautiful!!

Hmmm - that's odd. When I went to type in the word verification - one of the words was a picture (same with this comment). Odd! Anyway, I typed in the word and it worked.

That was fantastic! How envious I am, I wish I had the talent just like you! Maybe I need tons of practice to do that. Thanks for sharing!
