It's Sew Good

I love this new pre-colored image from The Paper Shelter.  I made a birthday card for a co-worker using this one (it isn't posted yet, it is for an upcoming challenge that TPS is sponsoring) and another co-worker loved it so much she wanted me to make her a framed one similar to the card for her to hang up in her sewing room.  One of my favorite things about The Paper Shelter is that they supply the paper and the image but separately and combined.  I used the combined pre-colored collage.  Sew...  Here is what I made.  It is a big 15 x 15 frame but the image is closer to 8 x 8.  I added buttons, gold gems burlap, flowers, stick pins and twine.  I used a gel pen over her eyes to make them glitter and over the music notes for the same reason.  I then added glossy accents over the eyes, radio dials, music notes and sewing machine.



Thanks for looking!

Nicely composed, constructed and executed. TPS does have wonderful pre-colored images. You have given this one an excellent presentation. Thanks so much for dropping this into our mailbox here at 613 Avenue Create.
