Amazing Carousel Doll Shrine Kits and More!
Happy Saturday everyone! We have some awesome new goodies in the shop! I'm just about over the moon for our new Carousel Shrine Kit and Carousel Doll Shrine Kit! Both were fun to design, and I couldn't help but hear carousel music in my head as I was working. The Carousel Doll Shrine Kit is a perfect compliment to our Theatre Doll Kits and more!
Can you hear the carousel music and feel the warm summer breeze on your face as you whirl round and round? I sure could as I was playing! Starting with my already assembled kit, I spray painted my entire piece with gold spray paint. These kits just BEG for German Dresden so I added the Mini Scalloped on the "poles" and Baroque Fuschia around the bases. Two strips per circle worked perfectly. The pearls and flowers around the doll are just thrown in. The decorative border holds them in. The beads rolling around reminded me of the game Hungry Hungry Hippos :). In the center I added a little Giraffe Paper Cut standing with a Theatre Character Stand. He's a bit hard to see. He's shy :).
Supplies Used: 3-D Articulated Carousel Doll, Turquoise Inka Gold, Fairy Doll Head Paper Cuts, Glue N Seal, Mini Antique Gold Scalloped Dresden, Fuschia Baroque Dresden Border, Carousel Horse Paper Cuts, Paper Roses, Round Pearls, Circus Paper Cuts, Theatre Character Stands.
It's worth mentioning that the NEW Carousel Shrine Kit can be combined with our Victorian Exploding Box Kit to create a Double Decker Carousel! Or you can use just the lid! ADORABLE! I'm offering the lid as an add-on so you don't necessarily need to by the whole box kit.
I'm loving our new Carousel Horse Paper Cuts. The Carousel Kits come with the Classic Horses, however this set can also be used. As I was working I thought of Wizard of Oz, "A Horse of a Different Color"! Remember?
I'm still working on my handmade hearts for the Sweetheart Fairy Shrine Swappers! I used our Masonite Hearts, Lots of Paper Cuts, Washi Tape, and my favorite Gold UTEE! I'm anxious to try the other UTEE colors!
This STUNNING Santos Doll is by the talented Denise Phillips! I absolutely love the cool tribal flair. Those gorgeous feathers are from Denise's bird Buddy! You can read more about this piece on Denise's blog HERE. Thank you so much Denise!
This gorgeous Santos Doll is by the talented Lisa Rupp! We met Lisa a few weeks ago and I'm thrilled to share her work again! You can read more about Lisa and her amazing creations HERE on her website. Thank you so much Lisa!
Just wanted to say hi so you could put a face with the name (and art goodies) for those of you not on Facebook! This is moi, the one designing all of those Coffee Break Design Kits and Cut-Outs, packing those orders etc. etc. This is my happy art face (which I have most of the time!). I was trying out a side braid for the first time, otherwise, I don't take too many selfies. Since I had one handy, I thought I would share. It's wonderful to meet YOU!
