MAWTT Challenge 87 - Fashion

Happy MAWTT day everyone.

Just before we look at the challenge this week, I just have to share the fact that I am a Ginger Gem at Gingersnap Creations again for the second time this month. Woo Hoo, time to celebrate. xox

Our very talented Pami is hostess this week and she has chosen a fabulous theme, anything to do with FASHION. Now this I think will be very attractive to many people and we are really looking forward to seeing cards, mixed media, jewellery, sewing -  just whatever you fancy making to go with this challenge.


I made my piece earlier in the week and I was totally inspired by this tutorial over at Gingersnap Creations by Sharon Briss called Glittery Gel Medium. I haven't followed it totally step by step but I have used the rudiments of it to create a canvas with a number of layers. I have included some glitter too, but it is difficult to see in the pictures.

The backing is completely made up of stamped tissue paper, added in layers and then embellished with lace, braid, shabby flower, ribbon, roses, a pin with ribbon and beads, a bow and gems.


The tiny tag I made myself. The main image is a download from Miss Cutiepie. I used DIs, a Ranger archival pad and Color Box petal points with mod podge, multi medium, gesso, acrylic paint and glitter.


This Week Crafty Emma's Store is our sponsor. Pop over to the store to see what goodies she has on offer just now with great items just in, including New Fizzy Moon Stamps, Papers and Blooms, also The Whiff Of Joy March releases are available on Pre Order.

Emma is offering the winner a choice from from sets of charms.







Have a fab Thursday. I will be around later but we have the internment of Mum's ashes today and we have 12 doves to fly at the end of the little ceremony. I think that will be lovely and a real sign of peace.

Take care. Thanks for stopping to see me today.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox

Fabulous Brenda .. it has a wonderful feel to it .. reminds me of my younger dressmaking days .. i used to go to the marker in my lunch time from saturday job.. get a couple of yards of material.. get home at 6 .. spend a couple of hours sewing and be out in the night club in my "outfit" later that night lol..
And as my daughter and Partner keep reminding me ..when i am trying to be clever .. I do have my needlework O level lol!!

Fab colours Brenda for a lovely piece of work.

I defintely could not go to Farnborough, having been to ArtsyCrafts and spent a fortune there on new stuff. At the moment I am wondering where it is going to go!
