First, special thanks to Jess for giving my pocket letter the title! I sent her a sneak peek and she said it looks like a Bohemian Tapestry!! I thought "perfect name"!! :-)
So, the story behind this....When I was on Facebook the other day I saw where one of my FB friends had made a metallics pocket letter, the first one she'd made in two years. We chatted back and forth and she said it was up for a swap so I asked her if she wanted to swap with me and she said sure! Sooo, I decided to make a metallic pocket letter also. I started digging through my paper stash, thinking I only had gold, silver, bronze...stuff like that, when I ran across a package of 6x6 metallic origami paper I forgot I had bought on clearance when our Craft Warehouse store closed! I was thrilled, because it had a lot of colors in the stack. I picked out my favorite ones, cut them down, then ran them through my Paper Studio Quatrefoil EF. The paper is very lightweight so I glued them to Tim Holtz silver and/or gold Metallic Kraft Stock. I then went through all my trims and glued them down before adding my other embellies! I diecut the flowers using DCWV Mercury Glass paper collection and the little ovals from TH Metallic Kraft Stock. I inked up the TH Quote Token with his Pool alcohol ink and then dabbed blending solution on it with a paper towel.
The key was from Aliexpress. The lovely mothlike butterflies are Fairy Tale from the jewelry section at Hobby Lobby. The trims in #2, 4-6, 8 and on the sidebar are also from Hobby Lobby. I can't remember where I got that beaded trim in #7 and 9.
Butterfly in #8 is Reneabouquets. I made the tassel from lots of various trims, ribbons and yarn in my stash.
Special thanks to Deb Kravec for the trim in #1 and #3 and Jess for the bulb pin I used on the tassel.
I had a lot of fun on this. I hope you like it and thank you so much for stopping by!!
