Fashion Plate


'Lets get Stitchy' is the theme for the coming fortnight over at Try it on Tuesdays.
We would love to see some stitching on the entries, 'real or faux'.
Please pop over for all the details and see what we have all been making.

The base of this hanging is a 6 x 4 inch canvas. Over time it has been  stamped, masked and  sprayed, wiped over with gesso to clean off the brush , I don't do waste paint etc.,  re- sprayed  to cover the gesso,  then left to sit around on my desk for simply ages.
However it seemed just what I was looking for,  to use for this project.
The images used all come from the Graphics 45 papers A Ladies Diary'.
My 'stitchy'  additions  are the  machine embroidered flowers and the stitching up the ribbon trim.
The rest of the bits and pieces came from my stash.

Thank you for stopping by, I always appreciate the comments you leave.

Delish and delightful. Some of my best background papers start off in the spray tray catching drips and splatters - as you say, it's a shame to waste it! I'm going to leave a little canvas out as well now to see what happens. Happy Craftng, Cindy x
