Frida Kahlo pillowcase makeover


All you need is:
A printed pillowcase, cotton yarn 8/4, needle
imagination, and a couple of nights ...


The picture above shows the pillowcase before my stitches!

The stitches I've used are:
Basting stitch, flat stitch, chain stitch , and french knot.


The picture above shows the pillowcase before and after
I had embroidered the flower headband.

And the picture below shows
the pimped necklaces and pendant.


I haven't embroidered anything similar for a LONG time,
but it was so much fun and I'll definitely be doing more
of these makeovers once in a while.

Hopefully you got some inspiration here?

Enjoy!

100% mindfulness while decorating the shells!

Painting on ...


... NATURE!



You can paint on rocks, wooden sticks, dry leaves,
sea shells ... and snail shells (like I just did).

I've bought the snail shells from the charity store
(a French package of shells for edible snails).

The pens I use are UNI POSCA pens.

Behind the scenes ...


For the time being I'm shooting photos for my upcoming book.

On top: This is what my readers will see.
Below: This is how it really looks like – behind the scenes!


I really love this table! It's perfect for MY styling, and has become part of my image!
As far as I remember it's featured in all of my first 8 books.
And I'm sure it's to be found in the next ones as well! :-)
