I complete my 50th post with this project and would love to dedicate this to"Womanhood"...and so I made this feminine, shabby chic altered CD hanging.
This is keeping in mind the cool,casual, confident woman in mind...and the project draws inspiration from the tattered, torn denims, lacy blouses, the soft pastel pinks and the bold black!
I have used an unused CD as the base and the 1st layer is a white Cheery Lynn doily and then comes the torn denim colored PP from Stack8.It is curled and torn in places to reveal the doily beneath!
The focal point here is the floral spray and the flowers are using cloth(fabric)...
The Black roses are rolled roses using the common black ribbon which in our good old school days was part of the uniform!
The pink roses are mini roses using TH tattered florals die and inked the edges in pink. I made the floral spray using wire and some pearls and crystal beads from my stash. the feathers are using CL die and are inked in blue and pink.
To the left is a cute altered clothes pin again with a rose and a torn denim bow! I so love this cute thing which holds on to the perfect sentiment " A great friend hugs your heart"...using Whimsy stamps.
The base is embellished with 2 layers of CL doilies, pleated to form a fan! The base has 2 white doilies pleated and on top of it is again 2 pink printed doilies.
The white doily frill is heavily inked with faded jeans distress inks and the pink frill with black soot.
A beaded loop made with pearls and black baubles adds to the aesthetics and this "shabby chic" CD is ready to be hung anywhere!
Wishing all you ladies a "Happy woman"s Day" . At first glance, this wall hanging reminds me of a confident ,young lady in jeans and a frilly blouse!...Can you see that too...please do let me know what you feel.
Thanks soooo much for stopping by.
