12 x 12 Layout in a wooden shadowbox frame. The main photo is me as a little girl, with Mom in the oval frame. I'm calling this piece "The Dressmaker's Daughter". When I was young, my Mom made all of my dresses and I used to model them in fashion show competitions. I really enjoyed it, and I continued modeling on department store runways well into my 20's.
This project began as an unfinished shadowbox frame I purchased at Michael's. I painted the frame with gesso, then I did some stenciling with modeling paste, some stamping and some spraying until I got the look I wanted. The papers I used on the layout are from the French Seamstress Kit at Kitty's Scrap Post. I really love this digital paper kit and this is my second project using it. I also did some fussy cutting of elements from the kit like spools, thimbles, birdcage, flowers, etc, and of course you'll find plenty of Gina's Designs's laser cut chipboard shapes on it too. The shadowbox is fairly deep so I added measuring tape and some wooden spools to the inside. Thanks for looking!
