Ring a Ring of Roses......D

Happy Sunday everybody

Today I am showing you a piece I have been working on over the weekend and it was a just for me project.

I had several chipboard body forms and decided to make a 3D version and also wanted to try light and shabby chic.  Still headed for the darker roses though lol.

I covered each body form with modelling paste and stamped using random rubber stamps into it.  I used several layers of paint ending up with the dry brushing technique.  I made the base out of 2 layers of chipboard, using the same technique as the body forms.  I then stuck them to the base and together to form a triangle.

As you can see I have used flowers, ribbon and trim from my stash.

I made the hat out of chipboard and again covered with paint, trim and flowers... oh I must not forget the feathers 

Now for overload of images.  Hope you like them!

I am laying this where my mothers ashes have been scattered for Mothers Day. My mum died a year ago, 2 days after MD.  I made it for her. Hope she can see it.

 Thank you for taking the time to drop by.

Hugz and love
Elaine aka Ellapu
