Re-living 40s glamour...

Thought you might like a little preview of what I'm working on - since Betty asked about the furs, I've been playing with some ideas for elements to go with them and I've come up with a sort of 40s glamour theme (I just love 40s movies, particularly noir).

I love my faux fur background combined with this coat from Dover, so there'll be a few of these. And so far I've got some opal and marcasite brads, flowers, hearts and frames. Then since I was working in marcasite, I remembered one of my mom's favourite items is a Tara brooch in marcasite and Connemara marble - so I tried to create something that resembled the marble, and I'm pretty pleased with the result. Which means in addition to the 40s Fur kit, I'm also working on another Celtic kit, but this time with Connemara marble, and possibly a little bit of Blarney.

I'll try to get the 40s kit uploaded Saturday or Sunday. In the meantime, have a great weekend!
