Here’s my 3D, cut paper French poodle made for a little girl who adores puppies and wanted something to match her Paris Toile bedding from www.PotteryBarnKids.com. Her name is Gigi and she is made of scrapbook paper with colored pencil shading to make her fur look as fluffy as cotton candy, watercolor paper and acrylic paint for her facial features. I glued a thin layer of cardboard between pieces to give her a little dimension…
Here are some photos of a bracelet from my collection of Pop Top Crafts taken by the amazing Jay Reilly:
I have tons of accessories made like this including belts, earrings and necklaces that I’ve written DIY instructions for. Jay is kindly photographing them for my new Etsy shop…I’ll announce the opening here when it is ready!
This Etsy-style witch was inspired by all the witches I loved as a kid including Samantha from Bewitched, Wendy from Casper the Friendly Ghost and the Wicked Witch of the West from Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz. I had just a tiny piece of the damask scrapbook paper I used for the ghosts and saved it for the right project for a year! Everything is made from hand cut paper with a bit of ink on the ghosts’ faces and acrylic paint for the ghost dust.
Some new Assorted Flavors onsies for my twin niece and nephew expected some time in the next couple months! These are hand illustrated with fabric pens on 100% cotton. Check out the whole collection at http://www.flickr.com/MindiLeatham.
My awesome sister Brooke recently discovered these in my dad’s basement and brought them to me along with some of my old toys, clothes and artwork. It is so much fun to have these again! 80s characters rule!
