" A L T E R I T"
Our generous sponsor this time round are:- Stamp Addicts
This is a fab theme for me as I quite like altering things. This mannequin and heart were altered especially for my daughter for her room in halls - they are rather drab when you first walk in. Danni (hence the "D") is studying Fashion Branding & Business (hence the mannequin) and she specifically selected the colours.
I added the wings inspired by Jonas Salk's quote:-
"Good parents give their children roots and wings.
Roots to know where home is, wings to fly away and exercise what's been taught them".
We hope we are good parents and have done our best.. but the saying struck a chord ....as the wings will let her fly the nest and experience life but then also fly home. Please accept my apologies for "going on" but just wanted to explain where my "alter it" piece came from.
My heart and mannequin were covered in Marianne Design Paper Tapes - Silhouettes and Birdcages. This is a huge range and is gorgeous. The focal words are all Stampotique stamps and the butterflies are stamps from a Crafty Individuals stamp.
The wings and the chipboard "D" on the heart were painted numerous times with a mixture of white and purple and coats were baby wiped and sponged to get the "worn" look.
I have added paper flowers, charms, lace and netting.
As well as being my DT piece for the Craft Room's "Alter-It" challenge I would like to enter the challenge:-
