Scrap Skirt

Hi All,

Woo Hoo ... check me managing a fairly regular blogging schedule :-)

I have been warring against my scraps for years, I have done all sorts, decorated my daughters room, created journals e.c.t ... recently I used up a whole lot doing some crafting with my daughters nursery ... the bag I have now is fairly small, but I don't like to add to it!!

So at the end of a crafting session I like to grab my scraps and use up there and then ... that was the thought process behind this creation. I have used a Julie Nutting stamp ... but chopped her up so I just have the legs, paper pieced her shoes and created a 3d skirt with my scrap papers and created a little handbag too.

I then added some stamping and colouring, but in all honesty I fell out with it a bit, so knocked the colour back with a little gesso, did a little stenciling ... then I created a little flower to use up the little bits of scraps.

Hope you like
