Joie De Vivre!

Joy of Life!
A good way to start off the week.
I am always changing my front door wreath with the seasons, holidays or moods.
I took down the patriotic decor, and replaced it with this muslin, hand stamped ribbon. I was trying out some new stamps, so I stamped Joie De Vivre on the muslin, added a vintage rhinestone clip, and 2 glass glitter stars that I made. Voila, a new wreath.
I also bought this amazing vintage looking pure silk ribbon, and stamped the word Paris on it. I wasn't sure if you could stamp on silk, but you can. I used an ink made especially for fabric.
I am really getting into more sepia tones, black and white, linen, burlap etc.
Well, I had better get back to work. I am working on a rather large glittered crown, and some special large glittered initials for a wedding.
Just wanted to say hi, and happy Monday!
Chat again soon.

Love that squared-off wreath, HOW UNIQUE! But then again, of course! -- it's a "Rosemary" -- LOL! Meaning a "Rosemary" is something beautiful and unique and could only come from your creative mind and hands!!!

Love your front door, wreath and the ribbon.

Enjoy your week

Oh Rosemary,
You are a genius in the d├ęcor department! I just have learned about painting on ribbon, but STAMPING?! That is the way to go. Hey, I love your door! Any chance I can get a closer peak at that door of yours? AWESOME!! Fondly, Anita

Those are beautiful! I have been the same way with color and fabric lately! I'm really wanting to make something out of burlap and stencil it. Probably a pillow?

Your door decoration is FaB!!! Really. LOve the ribbon you made. Did you use Stays On ink? The font is perfect and looks very LUXE.
I'm always worried about using silk seems to shrink on me if it gets wet.
Well it looks Super.
