Say It With Letters "COZY" with Yarns and Felt

Say it with Letters "COZY" word is now available for sale in Deb's shop at Etsy. Go HERE Also check all the inspiration in the shop.  Some amazing talent from the other designers. I have decorated the letters with the warm cozy yarns that are so soft and warm and cozy feeling.  The buttons are organic cotton buttons....so beautiful.  The machine is hand felted using the wool felt and several fibers.  I braided the three yarns together to make the bow on the y. 

The "C" with the coconut buttons....just so cute.

Love the feel of the yarn and buttons I purchased at Hancock Fabrics.

Here is the "O" with the felted heart.

Close up of the heart.

Apothecary House using Fabulous Papers By Echo Park

The Apothecary House.......all began from paper my husband went and bought me at my request I called Archiver's to see if they had it and they said YES! He stopped and picked it up for me and he didn't get home to real late that night so the next morning I walked into my studio knowing I was going to use it....I looked around thinking what do I want to do???
I saw this old nick nack shelf that I had purchased at a junk store (who doesn't love that?) I thought perfect an apothecary house.....I just adore those tiny bottles anyway......I used those fabulous Echo Park papers Apothecary Emporium and was so pleased with the results.  I included some herbs and spices to add to the effect. The papers were so perfect for this. The paints were basic white and Tim holtz crackle effects. I edited the picture in Photoshop.


More 7 Gypsies bottles and a handmade mortar and pestal and a tiny brass spoon.
The stickers are also from 7 Gypsies





The skull I hand built out of paper clay....love that stuff!
Here is another tiny 7 Gypsies Bottle with the "9" sticker also by 7 Gypsies
I always try to put a nine in my art work........


Here is what it looked like before the alter the cobwebs were an added bonus!
