As you know I have Collage Couture by Julie Nutting and I lurve the book and can quite happily sit and read through it every day. Although I did art at school I'm not one of those lucky people who can draw from memory but I can copy :O) so this morning I sat with some A3 paper and carefully drew away at one of Julies ladies. Then the fun bit came along - cutting her up and dressing her up!!! I dressed her in vintage style paper which was edged in Vintage Photo distress ink, added some lovely lace as a hem to her dress, made a pearl necklace and then .... time for the background!!!!
This is wallpaper which I fell in love with whilst browsing round B&Q - I covered it in Gesso, then sponged Vintage Photo over it, then got some really coarse sanding paper and started rubbing furiously over it until it started to look vintagey. The lady was added to the background and it was then inserted into an old picture frame that I got for £3 from a charity shop in Louth and Voila..........
There are a couple of challenges which I think this with fit which are :-
Zoe Bunny Crafts - Vintage
Love to create - Anything Goes
That Craft Place Challenge -Anything Goes
Right - off the play with some lovely diecuts that have only just graced the shelves in Grimsby Crafts lol
Thanks for looking Polly x
