I was in Hobby Lobby one day with some friends and came across this frame. My 40% coupon was burning a hole in my pocket, so I bought it with a vague idea that I would make it "perty" some day. The Wings paper seemed just right for this project!
What really got me thinking was the Bohemian alphabet. I could see the word "CREATE" in my mind -- crazy, huh!
I used the January Stamp of the Month. The dress form is in the "frame." For the butterfly and the shoe (don't you LOVE the shoe?!?), I stamped them in black ink and ~ because I inexplicably don't have black embossing powder ~ stamped over the image with VersaMark and embossed it in clear embossing powder. I then sponged ink over the images. The butterfly in the pewter frame is covered with Liquid Glass. I was too impatient to post the picture to let it dry completely, so it's still a tad cloudy. But tomorrow -- it will be bright and shiny!
This is my favorite part -- my sweet grandma and me on her 90th birthday a couple of years ago. She is one of my favorite people in the whole world and is a fabulous quilter. She is also the person who taught me to crochet. I love that we share the "crafty" gene.
And, yes, I have heard (once or twice or twenty) that I look very much like her. :)
