I made 42,000 attempts at duplicating this weeks teapot, sadly the outcome was not a happy one. I then attempted making cakes, the result was equally disasterous. So I went back to basics, put my apron on and rolled my sleeves up.
OK it is not a teapot or a cake, but the colours are here, circles (ah well I know they are really spots) and a whole lot of love.
I cut the shape of an apron, gave it a few gentle scores and inked the creases to look like pleats. I added paper lace trim and popped a real piece of lace in the pocket. To incorporate gold (like on the teapot) I added some gold twine and goldy coloured ribbon. To get a few circles happening, I rounded the corners and finished the card and apron off with faux stitching using a dark brown Micron pen.
Thanks for looking.

Such a sweet apron. You have the pink and green and all the polka dots are circles. You hit the ball out of the park. TFS
