Well, did I ever give myself a task here! I thought I would have a go at a shadow box as I had some cheap swedish ones on the shelf waiting for the moment. Then I found a vintage advert for sewing machines and printed it off my cd, and left it in the colour blue for the background. Then came the first challenge, as I got carried away in the blue moment and was worried that it would be too monotone! The box was painted with blue distress inks, tissue was stamped with the Tim sewing stamps in, yes you've guessed it blue, then stuck around the frame. Then I die cut the dress form and the needle paper. I made a dress out of some blue material and found some blue pearls. I made the skirt stand out by sticking some sellotape on the hem, stops it fraying too much. Then I wanted a pair of scissors, but no such stamp in my stash, so I drew a pair and stuck the drawing to grunge paper and coloured the blades with silver acrylic and the handles blue. I then needed a sewing machine, so I found a drawing and adhered it to more grunge and made a table with a matchbox and some pieces from an old wooden fan that I coloured. The button pelmet was in my stash, K&Co I think but I've had it ages and forgotten! I added tissue tape to a wooden reel with a top from the Tim set and distressed an old tape measure in my sewing box. The tab at the top is one of Wendy Vecchi's. Phew, got there! Just as long as you don't think it's a bit, well Blue?
