Pretty Things

Happy Tuesday everyone,

It's my turn to post on the Studio 12 blog at Polkadoodles today and I would like to show the project I was working on over the weekend.  It's something a little different today using the 'All Sewn Up' section of the 'Picknix - Volume 1' CD.  Here's what I made using just one image and one piece of paper (and a few bits from my stash) ...

I printed the mannequin outline and covered it with blue paper from the CD.  I used a wooden lollipop stick which I covered with two die-cuts for the upright part and secured it with glue gel to a base cut with my 'Circle' and 'Scalloped Circle' nesties.  The base is then decorated with a selection of flowers and leaves and a little 'With Love' sentiment.  The skirt is made by folding a piece of the blue paper concertina style and I added a piece of ivory lace around the bottom before securing it to the mannequin.  I trimmed the waistline with a piece of blue ribbon and added a flat backed pearl in the centre.  Finishing touches include a little necklace made from adhesive gems and a blue pearl heart on the bodice.  Hope you like it :)

Have a great day,
Hugz, Jan xx
