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! :)
