Marion Bockelmann from Germany hosts a swap of three ATC's every year and I was invited again to join in. Marion chose the theme to include any Renaissance women to alter. She said "Let´s face the word "Re-naissance" and give these ladies a new birth by altering them and their surroundings!"
So my altered ATC Is named "Beauty School Drop-out"
I cut out some Lynne Perella paper I had for the dress, wrapped some scrappers floss around the dress and then the Mad Hatters hat made a lovely addition to her ensemble.The background is one of Itkupilli's lovely creations altered with stamps and paint.
The original was "A portrait of a Nude Woman -Fornarina 1518 Renaissance Master by Raphael.
I love the pre Rapaelite paintings.
They are now on the way to Marion's in Germany to be swapped out among her international players.
On my birthday and my bingle day (accident) Bevlea, Lucy and Caro and I started to make the Fabric Cuffs.
I have done some more to one of mine by adding some lace, ribbon etc and the lovely brass butterfly Bevlea gave me to go with the Cameo that I think came out of my mother-in-laws jewellery box at some stage, not the antique I would like but still a treasure and I am pleased to be able to put it on something I will wear.
We still have to make the metal ends for it and add the cream buttons that I have sewn onto a piece of crotcheted (sp) cotton that Bev and Lucy made for us. I am hanging out to have our next play day on 1st July so we can finish them......... Then I can add the others here too.
