Arty Divas 10 September DT Project

Hi Lovelies!

Today is Challenge 4 at Arty Divas.  This is a FORTNIGHTLY "anything goes" (any type of project and any theme) challenge with a design team who makes projects showcasing the sponsor who often offers PRIZES!

This week's sponsor is LilyMelba
Lily's Etsy Store

I was pretty intrigued by these vintage ladies.  They reminded me of the Dyan Reaveley sassy and snarky phrase stamp sets.  I felt I could possibly somehow make some wall art or other "off the page" project combining the stamps and ladies.

I printed the three collages of ladies (sized to fit inside these shadow frames) twice each.

I used some distress inks in Victorian Velvet and Milled Lavender through two stencils (I'm really not that great at this sort of thing!) then fussy cut all the ladies from the duplicated prints and stamped phrases.

I wanted just the smallest amount of dimension and slight offset when I stuck the the fussy cut lady over the top of the background so I used the last of my Clear Tack adhesive "foam" squares.

The sentiments got proper dimensional foam.  I only had space for around three per frame, so I chose the most appropriate ones to the ladies.  I was most inspired by this quote from my favourite Downton Abbey character, Countess Violet

Lastly I chose three different packs of Spiegelmom Scraps sequins (which may or may not match the colours I envisage for a craft studio not yet in existence)  and added some of the "Into the Woods" mix into each one to add a more vintagey vibe.

Many sequins get stuck around the elements which I'm fine with, but most gather at the bottom of each frame when upright (they were photographed flat).

While they didn't turn out completely the way I imagined, I'm more or less happy, although I think I would like to repaint the frames.

Here are the three frames in their entirety:

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you submit your own creation in the challenge!

Love and vintagey vibes,
