Too much clutter and what to do next?

I walked into my craft room and decided that the overflowing of shelves and bags and lack of floor space has to stop!
I am therefor slowly listing items on eBay to try and clear some room, there are a lot of crafts that I do not indulge in anymore so they may as well be sold off to give me more space.
It's going to take along time!!! lol

I have a gathering of creams awaiting creation, and I have a phantom style mask that is almost giving me a headache as to what to do with it, so it is on the windowsill for now....waiting for me!

I will pop some pics on later of the new creation that should take place in the next few days in between work, bank holidays and beautiful grandchildren. :)

Green leather medieval mask


I was recently asked to make a medieval mask to go with a green outfit for a festival, it was decided that leather would be the best effect so I set to it and this is the end result!



I cut the shape and then cut out different sized leaf shapes and sewed and glued them into place, some have a shiny bead sewn into the centre to add a glint of shine here and there. It is finished with swirls of gold glitter and black ribbon to tie.


 
I am very happy with the end result, it is soft and will be very comfortable to wear at the festival.

I am working on this Vintage cottage chic mask at the moment but am unsure if I like it or not, I feel it is slightly lacking but just can't decide what to do!?!


I have added pearls around the eyes and I must admit it does look better in the flesh so to speak but is definitely proving to be a bit of a headache! :)
So....until next time.. Goodbye and Thank you for visiting! :)

Me...owww cat masks

Cat masks are my favourite for decorating, I love making all the masks that I do but I think the cats are the best!

 I just love doing these!
I am pleased to tell you that this purple one has SOLD! :)


I am starting to see that the black ones are the most popular, I guess they look the most realistic!?
Although I really like the ones in funky colours, especially the hot pink seen here in my Etsy shop
https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/165367577/pink-cat-masquerade-mask?ref=shop_home_feat

I will do some more black ones but have the urge to do a funky colour, just not sure what colour yet!!

Leather Mask

I have been desperate to try making a leather mask, so was happy to find some suitable leather and have a go. The leather was really thick and very hard to cut but I managed it and set to work.
I started with this piece of 5mm leather.......... used a hand drawn template and cut out my design.


 
And after all my hard work and nearly slicing off my one of my fingers I ended up with this mask!
 
I am very happy to say that this mask has SOLD! :)
