All Dressed Up..

Here is my submission to Mind Wide Open. I liked working with a 'real' piece, instead of a digital one this time. It reminds me of a shabby chic Christmas ornament, 'all dressed up' ready to be displayed! It measures 6 1/2" wide and 7 1/2" long.
I used an embroidery hoop as the frame and the 'canvas' is a piece of linen that I sewed antique lace, the picture frame, ribbon and the buttons to. It hangs from a loop of vintage pink ribbon and is embellished with a brass knob at the top and an architectural piece at the bottom. The back is covered in a lovely piece of vintage wallpaper. I think perhaps I'll list it for sale in my Etsy Shop. Thank you Gail for the inspiration! and thank you, ladies, for all of the eye candy you create each month! I can't wait to see what everyone else does.
Remember, voting starts tomorrow! Please leave a comment for your favorite piece!

Hi Abbie !

i noticed your background has changed - i love it !! ;o)

I decided to make something this time - instead of digital .It makes it more personal .
I love the hoop idea to show it off ! It`s a very clean and refreshing piece you have made- and i love the trims and of course the vintage wallpaper backing !

Well done !
