All sewed up for Creative Expressions DT
Well here I am with my 2nd post of the day and my DT post for Creative Expressions. This week I am using the lovely antique dress forms set. These come as a unmounted sheet with lots of stamps on, that can be mounted onto easimount , cut out and off you go!
So here is my make for today ( sorry there are not many step x step pictures as my computer has decided I am not allowed them! ) :
I started by covering part of the box in clear texture paste mixed with gesso...and the sprited the ruler background stamp with water and stamped into paste to create some texture on the box. This was then allowed to dry.
When dry I painted the whole box with antique linen distress paint because I love he colour...on my 3rd bottle! (oops!) but any neutral colour paint would be fine. I also stamped the ruler background onto some torn pieces of tissue and applied to the lid, using glue and seal. Not sure if you can see I then also stamped some of the mini stamps from set and set to work with my gilding waxes...in enchanted gold and autumn bronze.
The sides of the box were also stamped and had wax added to them.
