Trading posts - Grey and yellow ... clutch

As usual when Amie (Kitty Cats and Airplanes) and I meet to craft it was a lot of fun. We had nothing planned ahead this time around, apart from a color scheme: grey and yellow. It's one of Amie's favorite color combinations (if not THE favorite). As usual, we put together our stashes and skills and came out with some really cool crafts. 

First Amie showed me how to make her sweet envelope clutch. I had this great floral brocade that was just perfect for the projects. And to jazz them up, I showed Amie the kanzashi folding technique and we made some matching flowers mounted on pins. 

A little faux-nacre snap for the closure
Lined in a matching yellow satin, with a little pocket

Here is mine

And this one is Amie's

After that we transformed the floor of my studio into a bead explosion
I will show you the outcome in my next post
And yes we cleaned it all up after
