It's the 17th so that means I have another All Dressed Up inspiration post for you! This time I used one of the super sweet "Three Little Autumn Girls" from the image available HERE. I printed her out on 8 1/2 X 11 fit to page. I colored her up with my pencils and just tore around the image, leaving a white border. Then I set her aside and prepared my canvas.
I inked all the edges of a 12 X 12 canvas. I chose my paper and punched around it. This particular punch makes holes that are crying out for stitching, so I added some stitching in several spots. I then punched some other borders out of a different paper and adhered them between the layers. I also added some stamping here, there, and everywhere. Then I used a stencil and added a bit of paint. Finally, it was time to adhere the image.
All that is left to do now is a little embellishing. I punched out some flowers and die-cut some leaves, I inked them all and added them to the page. Then I cut some rosette trim and layered it along the bottom...and one in her hair as well. The final step was to write out my words and add them.
It was a super fun piece to make, and I hope it inspires you to create something too! Wendy has so many images that are fun to play with. You can find them all in the All Dressed Up Etsy Shop!
A happy day to you all! :o)
