ECLECTIC ELLAPU CHALLENGE....."ANYTHING GOES"

Hi Everyone,

I hope you all are having a fabulous weekend...It's the start of the weekly challenge at ELECTIC ELLAPU
The theme chosen by our Lovely Leader Elaine... "Anything Goes" so create anything you like..card, tag, layout , canvas, the list is never ending...so pop over and take part we would love to see your wonderful projects......We also have a Fantastic new Bunch of DT Members..Please pop over and say Hi...

I have had this body-form forever..so I decided to alter it.. For the main body I used some napkins from Caspari.. I cut these into squares then adhered them with some watered down PVA glue..The butterfly body I cut from old material.. I found this piece of  rolled flowered material in the loft in a bag full of fabric that I keep for just in-case... you know the box I mean ladies and Gents we all hold on to stuff... & me it's a fabric box... I added some flowers, lace, & pins... I did make a flower from the napkins also but a little hard to see from pics... I mounted the form onto an old wooden candlestick which I painted cream!  It was really difficult to photograph this so I hope you can see it OK... Have a great Sunday..



Thank you so much for your visit today..Keep Safe
Hugs May x x x x
I would like to entre this in:
fashionable stamping challenge (alter it)
