What's On My Desk Post No. 2

Welcome back Friends!
I'm making progress with what's on my desk.
While watching a YT video featuring both Sheila, from Bohodaydreams, and
Sally, from Rainy Day Gypsy, these two daydreamers, and oh so inspiring ladies,
had me laughing out loud while viewing their video.
 They inspired me to get out my baubles, beads, and wire cutters
and create a few boho baubles of my own.

The vintage envelope above was converted into EnVe Art 
with some of my sari silk, vintage french papers, faux scotch tape cut using 
a pattern pair of scissors and a rusty good metal flower creating using my
rusty goodness recipe where you can find such recipe here on my blog. 

The above piece of ephemera was inspired by Rachel Tomlinson on YT.
 I used one of my own vintage family photos. 
Some of that yummy sari silk was used, as well as some old vintage tatting too.
Oh look...you can see a better view of the boho beads in the pic above too.
When I see these beads, they make me smile because of Sheila and Sally's funny posts. 

An envelope tea dyed, stamped, some faux scotch tape,
and some messy threads too. 

Thanks for visiting and checking up on my progress.
