Good morning my lovelies, my project today is a little mannequin for a change and guess what? I haven't used a single stamp! its not like me at all but I had some pretty napkins and I thought the colours would be perfect for a spring project.
I primed the mannequin with gesso and then gave it a coat of cream acrylic paint. Once that was dry I applied the flowers from the napkin with Maimeri Matte Gel Medium and left it to dry (don't ask how long it took me to cut the flowers out lol) Next I applied Maimeri Light modelling paste through a Crafters Workshop Harlequin template, once it was dry I added flitter glu and gilding flakes to highlight the pattern.
I gave her a skirt made from tulle and some beautiful beaded lace trim. I also gave her a seam binding ribbon belt with a little pearl buckle and a necklace made with pearl string from the Ribbon Girl. I added some utee roses to finish off.
I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Allsorts: anything but a card
Crafty Emblies: anything goes
Crafting for all seasons: No stamps allowed
Crafty Ribbons: anything goes with ribbon
In the pink: ribbons and ruffles
So Artful: green pink blue (spring colours)
That Craft Place: altered items
Totally Gorjuss: ribbon and pearls
Well I may have been doing some Spring crafting but there's nothing Springlike about the weather, its sooooo cold and windy, fingers crossed it will be better for the weekend as we get an extra day off for the bank holiday.
Thanks for visiting today,
