I used a Tim Holtz die-cut, Grunge Paste and Treasure gold to make the costumes on dress-forms on this page, using the die both as a cut-out and as a stencil for the floating background dress-forms.
My secret journal message is in a little pocket and says 'Her feet had wings'. I also used part of Tim Holtz bird-cage die for the hoop on the dress-form in this close-up. The page is a mix of hand-painting using Paper Artsy Frescos, collage using stamped Paper Artsy images and Cafe Retro Art Gallery collage images and TH die-cuts with Grunge Paste and Treasure Gold White Fire for dimension.
I really enjoyed myself, imagining that I was designing costumes for some new Bird Ballet and thinking about how sometimes happiness does give us wings and turn us into the greatest dancers!
If you click on the pictures you can see in a little more detail! Thank you so much for stopping by for my 'B' for Ballet and indulging me. I just felt like I needed to escape for a bit!
