Sometimes, my swapping friends include little gifts with their ATCs,
(although totally unnecessary, still, very much appreciated).
This beautiful piece of lace was tucked into the envelope that Manu sent from Germany.
I know it is difficult to see,
but it is the background piece onto which I built this collage,
all of the lovely edging details are still visible on the finished piece.
The lace piece arrived in a crisp white color,
I knew that I wanted to do something to change it.
I thought about my go-to coffee bath.
Then I spied the beautiful floral spray that Maggie had packed in with her ATCs,
and knew immediately in what direction to proceed.
I used a spray dye on the lace,
added a Paper Whimsy girl,
and sorted through my purple stash for embellishments.
I love when an un-plan comes together.
enJOY a lovely today my friends!
