CR84FN Color Challenge



I have used Mona's CR84FN As inspiration for my She Art creation.


I saw the skirt Christy Tomlinson at Scarlet Lime
did with the rolled papers and immediately thought it would make a fab ballet skirt. Have been chomping at the bit to find a free afternoon to make one. It was the surgeons week so I worked late Friday night and back for the POs on Sat morn.Worked a long hard week and said to myself, It's a gloriously beautiful day here in the desert so going to work in the garden for a bit and said housework will have to wait! After finishing the gardening I'm taking the afternoon to create , do you ever do that??

After cutting a piece of thin fiber board I started by painting the background with white then begin to work in the green grey and lavender. I stamped some doodles with ink then stamped the little flower using paint.I sketched
out a dancer...my proportions are not just right but they will have to do for this one.
Tore and rolled book pages to form tubes then dipped in some diluted ink. While the roles dried I painted her and cut out her top. I glued on all the paper rolls adding a little paint for color then used some tulle for a tied belt. Lastly I made the top medallion by layering different pieces of Spellbinders punching a center hole. After attaching them all together I pulled my lavender and green ribbon thru and tied a knot to form the hanger.



This hanging is 7 x13 so my camera isn't able to capture all the details close up. Here is a closer pic so you can see the rolls that form her skirt. Sorry my camera isn't better so you could see the colors and details a little more clearly. Such fun she was to make and I'm pleased with the way she turned out. So glad you stopped by today. If you are interested in the classes you can find them here.
