Oh Sew Good!

Over @ Tuesday Throwdown their theme is 'Anything but a card'
And this project definitely fits the bill..
I altered a plain paper mache collage box, Into my own mini configuration piece.
I used a textured paste on the frame, then painted over it in white and accented with fancy metal corners and old vintage buttons,
The inside was covered with old book pages and old dress pattern paper
I embellished with some mini 'rolls' of fabric, chipboard props and a friendly plastic mannequin.
This has to be the first project i've done in a long while that has absolutely no stamping on it!!!
Have a great week!

This is lovely - I don't sew (I've always blamed my lack of sewing skills on being left handed!!) but I love all the stamps and ephemera which is around at the moment - I've even bought the TH die and am working on a sewing box just so that I can use it in a meaningful way! Well done with this fab project. JulieD
