First Ever Club Anya Blog Hopping Bash!!!

So the time is here....Blog Hop away. For my Anya project I have made a gift bag. The base of this is done by using a small paper bag, which has been trimmed down. I saw one of these on the hAnglar & stAnglar blog and just had to make one...or two....ok loads.

I want to enter this project into the "Smokin' Hot" category....I believe this fit the bill....I made the black flower by using a technique of burning fabric......these flowers look so effective (as you can see from the close-up if you scroll down). I even had my first go at beading by adding the little pearls to the centre of the flower to add dimension I thread three at a time. I also changed one of the Miss Anya stamps by cutting out the three shopping bags she was carrying a put a heart pin in her hand instead.

I have written a tutorial and will post it on Friday, so if you are interested make sure you come back then.
Here is the close-up I mentioned earlier in this post.....click on it to make it even larger.

So now I am off to Blog Hop around all the other 59 Anya & Ian addicts playing along tonight....not sure how long I will keep at it as it is the early hours of the morning here....and they are all in a different Time Zone.
