Distressed Feminine Beauty

Blimey 2 posts on a wet soggy Sunday morning :) but it is a good day to craft :)
Over at Artful Times they are asking for a bit of Distressed
and at Vintage Stamping Challenge they want Feminine Beauty
two fabulous challenges and right up my street
Do drop by both blogs and check out the marvellous DT work
For this make I really wanted to do a chunky canvas but I did not have one so I have used a box lid and dare I say it:
 it worked out ok I think.
The box lid has been covered in scrunched up tissue paper
and I applied a lot of modge podge
then painted in vintage white and sky blue
stamped and embossed a gold swirl
stamped music, added bits of book page
well and truly metallic rubbed (I love these)
a die cut swirl and a body form which are painted blue
I made all the flowers
and found a lovely pre cut lady to finish
Thank you for visiting me and taking time to comment
Have a lovely Sunday
Hugs Sandra XXX

What a gorgeous 'canvas' Sandra, I wish I had more of your natural shabby chic style! Thanks for coming to visit, I do very little blogging these days but still managing to do a bit of crafting 'here and there'! Xx
