Dressmakers window by Brenda

Hello all, Brenda here with my last post of March and some more Sewing Room inspiration.

My top creation was inspired by a recent trip to Paris and the fashion houses and I saw one that didn't have any beautiful dresses but instead was luring their clientele with the lure of a window display of dressmakers mannequins. So I stamped three of the images from Floral MannequinsThe Sewing Room and Haberdashery, created a window with a die and used some lace, a window box, and a brickwork wall using an embossing folder.

Next a canvas, a base of gesso and texture paste through stencils and sanded it down a little when dry then sprayed dylusions which I watered down a bit to tone down the colour. The same colours onto the chipboard Butterfly which I then stamped with the beautiful new Folk Art Garden and added some of the sentiments from the same sent.

My final piece is another using Folk Art Garden stamped with Versafine onto purple vellum and heat embossed with detail white powder. I stamped the Butterfly twice more and cut out to decoupage mounted onto a white card base and some purple ribbon down the side.

My thanks for your visit today, your encouragement is always appreciated.

  4. Wow, three fabulous and creative projects!!! Love so much the dressmakers window and the bright canvass! The last card looks so elegant and impressive in purple and white!!

  5. What stunning cards Brenda, designs and colours are amazing. Absolutely love the first one, how clever it is, Kate x

  6. The shop window is a great idea on the first Brenda, and the more neutral look with more colour provided by the sweet flowers, and then the colourful canvas with the white flourishy texture in the background which works so well with the pretty large butterfly and just a couple of sentiments to finish, and finally the beautiful purple with the white embossing using the fabulous Folk Art Garden stamp and then the white eyecatching butterfly and gorgeous ribbon are perfect as finishing touches. x
