Thank you so much for your lovely comments and kind words on my recent posts. I will be replying to each one very soon.
I wanted to try and get this post out as soon as possible because I want to enter into the PaperArtsy “Matchbox” challenge.
In one of my recent posts I mentioned to you that I was thinking about doing some papier mache projects. You will be pleased to know my glue has arrived!! 🙂 Whilst I was thinking about what I was going to make with that I had an idea for the challenge project.
I will make some more of these little figures because quite honestly she was so much fun to make. This was a sort of prototype and needs modifying but when I have sorted it out I will make another with an sbs and some photos along the way. I think we will call her Betty.
These stamps are very new to me. I was very lucky to win the PaperArtsy challenge recently and these are some “Jofy” stamps I purchased with my winning voucher.
The draw and cover. Betty’s garden.
The back of the draw. Betty’s house.
Inside the draw
I love Betty’s chunky Mary Janes 🙂
Those boots were made for walking!
The draw with the cover on.
The Matchbox cover was made with water colour paper, coloured with distress inks and the water colour pencils.
The draw was made out of card stock and covered with back pages and pretty papers.
Betty was painted with acrylic paints.
Thank you for looking.
