The choice for this months prompt TRAVEL was easy for me. I organise coach travel - holidays and day trips - for a living. One of the vehicles we have is a 1963 Leyland Tiger Cub classic bus.
We sometimes use her for weddings and have lots of fun decorating her in appropriate colours.
I used old wallpaper to cut out the dress shapes. Then just started layering, with gesso, acrylic paints, magazine cut-outs, stamps, more gesso, glittery embossing powder. I inked the edges to give it a vintage feel. Added ribbon and sequins to the neck and hem edge. Dipped ready made flowers in tea and added them to the dress with ribbon, sequins, flowers, beads and stick on jewels. I added lines for journalling on one dress shape, then stuck the two shapes together, catching a wire coat hanger in between.
I have left space on the back for some journalling.
I am really enjoying taking part in this challenge, I am trying to keep the things I make small - so that they actually get finished!
