The new challenge theme at Try it on Tuesdays is 'Feminine and Fancy'.
I hope you will pop over to TioT's to see what we have all been making
We have some news as well and are welcoming Valerie to our D.T. Her blog Bastelmania is an inspirational place to visit.
I have had this mannequin lurking in my craft room for months, patiently waiting for a make over.
I used acrylic paint as a base, mainly because I knew I was aiming to cover the whole thing with torn pieces of book print.
The book paper idea came from watching a demo by Indigo Blu on TV.
The next stage was to shade with antique linen distress paint.
The flower panels were stamped onto tissue using Timber Brown Staz-on, before glueing in place.
A favorite flower and leaf stamp, painted with Pebeo Prisme paints, then fussy cut, were added
As you see, the other trimmings I used were lace, buttons, a bead edging ribbon and a small drawer knob at the top, just right to hang the jewelry on.
Thank you for stopping by to take a look, I always appreciate your comments.
