A little Steampunk Anyone ...



Good Afternoon everyone 
Today I am sharing my latest Project with you
and its a little Big it's been a while since a made a large project
I am so in love with this and Honestly the pics just don't do it justice 

Here is my Steampunk Dress 

The Inspiration for this dress was the Stunning wings 
that I got from Laura @Thats Craft 
The Wings are by Candy @ A Vintage Girl 
They themselves are a massive 11 inches 

She is a massive 20" high
and 17" wide 


Papers are of course Graphic 45 
sell these Individually 




I made a copy of my Bust form with papier Machie
and Then arranged my design around this 



To Make the shape of the skirt
I cut them to size popped a hole in the centre and popped
 some string in and I sprayed them with water once
 I had the shape I dried them with my Heat tool 


There is lots of Cogs and Chain Greyboard  Die cuts
these dies are the Mixed Media Tonic ones  


I also used Imagination Crafts Salmon 
Starlight Paints for the cogs and chains 
Tulle from online which I sewed to make the pleats for the skirt

Graphic 45 Flowers 
and Finnabair Fabric panel 

I hope you like it as much I have enjoyed making it 

Any Questions and I will get back to you

Easter Hoops



Good Morning Everyone
Hope you're all well.
After my day of Vertigo on Tuesday 
I was quite glad to wake up on Wednesday
and it had gone, So I was able to Craft 

I have had these Kiddle Mintay papers 
for a few weeks and I decided to pull 
them out and make some wall decor 
for a friend with twin Grandchildren 



I painted the Embroidery Hoops in White and 
attached Grey board to the backs of each to
 make them very sturdy, 


Added some of the frames which I cut out the 
middle so photos could be added, 



Added lots of Fussy Cut elements from the papers 



Also added flowers from Prima 
in matching colours 


Products Used
