Clothe Yourself

The new twist for our Anything Goes challenge over at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday is Layers and Dimension.   Again this week, I decided to take the twist into a sewing direction. 

This is a canvas I designed using a quote/passage from Proverbs.  I started with a small canvas and inked it in various shades of berry and pink.  I then glued down some torn pattern paper.  The layers continued from there including stamping, copies of pattern envelopes, die cuts (some heat embossed), 2 laces, twine, flowers, gems, bow, pins and butterfly!

  13. Oh how amazing! What a beautiful way to highlight this verse! Love the gorgeous collage elements and color scheme. A brilliant design! Hugs, Autumn

  14. A great piece but unfortunately, it does not suit the challenge at Unstampabelles - because you have used stamps in your background. We aim to make without using stamps - digital or otherwise. Such a pity as this is a fabulous arty piece. Please think of us again next month and make something beautiful without using your stamps!

  15. Wow I love all the texture you have created on this piece. Thank you for joining the Anything Goes Challenge over at Diecut Divas. Cathie DT
