~ Sweet Silvery Girl~

~I wander mountain to mountain,
From sea to sea,
I wander into a country
Where everyone is asleep.
There in the Land of Nod
I never think of home,
For home is there,
With sleeping doves and silvery girls,
Sleeping boys and drowsy roses.
There I find people whose eyes are heavy,
And trees with folded wings.~
~ Land Of Nod ~

Love Her Poetry!
 In May I signed up 
for Parisian Dreams
with Nancy of Sugar Lumps Studio. 
One of the Pieces we were inspired to Create 
was Flea Market Clip Boards.
Lets See...May, June, July and August..
3 1/2 Months Later Here,Finally is my Piece!
I decided to try my Hand at these
Beautiful Fabric Roses
I see Everyone Making.
The Fabric I used here was Heavier than Muslin.
They called it utility Fabric at Joann's.
I just tore 2 inch wide strips by the
Width of my Fabric from Salvage to Salvage(40")
I Liked the look that tearing the Fabric gave the Roses.
I started by rolling the Center and then Twisting the Fabric
so it folded over itself,
around that Center until I had my Rose.
A little Hot Glue or
A Couple of Stitches and you are Done.

I then Stitched on  a Crocheted Doily to the back 
just to add another Element 
as well as a Covering for
the less Pretty Backside of the Rose.
 Lemay and I found some Old Paper Lace Doilies 
that had such a Wonderful Patina. It is a Little Tricky to Glue them on because they wanted to tear but I loved the Look they Gave. 
I found Matte Gel Worked Best and Also worked Very Well with the Mica I used to add a Little Sparkle to the Victorian Scrap!
Love this Look!
What I Learned in Floral Design is to
Always Cover your Naked Behinds!
So a Piece of my Favorite Sheet Music
and another Paper Lace Doily...
And we are Finished!
Loved this Project! Thank You Nancy!

Hello Jill, I always find your blog so inspiring and encouraging. Like you I've taken a long while to work on my clip board, not to mention the fabric book!! Both still awaiting completion, but seeing yours has given me some motivation. Just love the silvery girl and the fabric rose, beautiful touches. Nancy's projects are always fun!! Happy week-end, Robyn.
