I am very very excited to be sharing my first post for FLOURISH WITH A BLING. I am still pinching myself that I was chosen to be apart of their very first Design Team, the team is full of very talented ladies and I am sure you are going to enjoy seeing what we all create.
Before I share what I have created, I want to show you what I received in my first DT kit! I was totally gobsmacked with the generosity of the lovely ladies at flourish with a bling! There was actually more but I used some on the project I am about to show.
Sorry about the glare on the photo! Isn’t it pretty!!!! So much yummy product to play with.
I have been creating this project for some time now, I was struggling to find the right embellishments for it, but as soon as I opened my DT Kit, I knew that I had found the finishing touches to my Dress Form. I love it, I hope you all do to.
I started by painting my dress form with gesso, once it was dry I added some ink and then used white crackle paint. I embossed the metal sheets with some texture fades and them colored with alcohol ink. Once dried I punched holes down the side and used eyelets to strengthen the holes, I colored those with copper alcohol mixatives .
I threaded the dress on with some waxed blinding book thread, added lace.
As most of you know I love all things Tim Holtz and had to added some of his embellies to! I cut the edges off this plate tag and rubbed snow cap dabber paint into the font!
Now don’t you just love this AMAZING pearl embellishment, it is called CHLOE, ANTIQUE GOLD and is simply stunning. What I really liked about this flourish was when I took it out of the packaging it did not lose its shape or get stuck on its self like many I have used before. If you look closely at the photo you will notice it also keeps its shape if used dimensionally. GOTTA LOVE THAT!
A very good DT friend from WOW Embossing Powders Tina sent me an assortment of goodies and in it was these stunning flowers from prima! The leaves are from an op shop hunt and I colored the with some alcohol Ink, gold
I Just love how these pearls sit!!!
Sorry this pic is not as clear as I would have liked it. On the black flower lace I have added some YUMMY ANTIQUE GOLD PEARLS
I was totally over the moon when I received my goodies and are super excited that I will be able to share with you all over the next year using Flourish with a bling.
