I made this project for Let's Get Shabby Challenge #17, Sunday nite. The challenge is about "Raiding Your Sewing Boxes," creating a project using items from your sewing box. There needs to be at least three (noticeable) sewing box treasures, pins need to be one of your three.
I created this piece by starting off with a square canvas. I painted it with antique white acrylic paint. I think adhered a piece of pink gingham fabric that I inked up a little to tone it down. I added the eyelet trim around the edge along with some Prima trim. I added some Prima roses, I distressed the baby ones with ink. I added Thickers for the title (added some pearl accents to "dull" the shiney black a little). The spools and scissors are Maya Road chip pieces that I painted with black acrylic paint. I wound string around the spools and added some Maya Road heart stickpins that I added pearls to. I inked up the Maya Road dressform chip piece and dressed it up with lace and trims and a bow. Added some Prima pearl flourishes and a seam binding bow that I glimmer misted with various colors.
I loved making this project except for getting burnt by the hot glue gun. OUCHIE! Thank goodness for aloe plants ;p'!
Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!
