I based my canvas on corsets and how they have been in fashion through the centuries, I really enjoyed doing this, but it did take a few days to complete and it doesn't look anything like I had in mind in the beginning. I painted the canvas first with fresco paint, then stamped then painted with water down fresco paint. I had seen somewhere the bird cage used as a skirt but where I don't know, I think it could have been when I was artsycrafts but I feel awful that I can't give credit to who gave me the inspiration. Below are some close ups and at the end of the most is a material list.
The second project are the twinchies, I'm afraid I can't find where I put the material list for the ones I did oops, I used stampboard, then stamped with versamark, coloured with distress inks and then embellished with crafty individuals glossy paper sheets (life's journey 1) and some TH fragments. Below are the twinchies that I did for the swap .....................
And below are the stunning swaps I received, I have also added there blogs underneath.
I shall go top left to right, and then below left to right. Suze Bain, Annette Goatly, Laura Liddell, Alexa Noble, Valerie, Petra.
Right such a long post but I'm ultra happy with my vintage month and even prouder of myself that I have done a creation that I think is worthy of mojo monthly. Thanks for looking :-) Kezzy xxx
