I Give Up!

I have visions of sugarplums dancing in my head . . . wait . . . that's something totally different! lol I always have visions of creating something elegant or shabby chic. My friend, Heidi, is an EXPERT at that! I just love her style! I try to make something elegant and shabby chic and end up getting stuck and have to call her! Well, this time I refused to do that cause when I do call her, when I'm done, it doesn't feel like I made it! lol But anyway, I need to accept the fact that I have a "cutesy eclectic style" that the owner of my LSS says I have. Jeez, I hope that's a good thing! :) I altered a wooden pocket book with this really cool paper of a lion. One side has the eyes staring out at you and the other side has a lion and lioness sitting in grass. Anyway, I've become quite intimidated by stamping or drawing on it, so I've decided to give it a rest for now. I then tried my hand at this one (this is the front):

I could see visions of . . . something ;) with this beaded ribbon and I thought the colors went really well. And I KNEW I wanted to stamp something on it, but not sure what! Oh, boy. But then I didn't know where to go with it! lol Anyway, this is the back:

This is the inside of the pocketbook:

Supplies: SugarTree pp; Miss Elizabeth's rhinestones; Delta acrylic paints; Champion spray paint; ribbon - from my stash.

I feel like it's not finished, but not sure how to finish it. Oh, boy. Oh, and can someone please tell me how to seal it to protect it?

That's when I decided to give up trying to make something elegant or shabby chic. I decided to just go with and accept my "cutesy eclectic style!" lol I'm almost finished with that one, but I'm waiting on a great-niece's input on something I want to add. I want to make sure it's "hip" and "now!" lol Hey, I said I was cutesy eclectic, not "hip" and "now." ;)
