Have you SEEN the new collage sheets over at Retro Cafe Art Gallery? Holy FUN, BATMAN!!! They are designed by Cassandra Vancuren and they are fabulous!!! I got to play with a couple of them and couldn't resist diving into the Marie Antoinette sheet and the ABSOLUTELY adorable borders sheet! I created a little Spoolie!!!
You do know she was a horrible woman, right? That whole 'Let them eat cake' thing was actually attributed to Marie when she was told that the people had no bread. She was actually referring to brioche, an enriched bread, and...for that matter, she probably never even actually uttered those words. They were included in a book written about her, but not likely actually uttered by Marie, herself. She was completely and utterly out of touch with her people and had not understanding whatsoever of how a person could be without bread. Interesting, huh? Anyway...enough history lessons for today...
I wrapped one of the borders from the collage sheet around the spool, added some May Arts burlap string in PINK! YAY! and accented it with glitter glue and pearls!
The little trinket pin is a Tim Holtz gem (which you can find at RCA!)
