I love creating mixed media books - this is one I created earlier this year where I combined all of my favorites - fabric, paint, flowers, papers, transparencies....the list goes on.
I fell in love with the Hambly dress form line of printed transparencies and rub-ons immediately and really wanted to work with them - thank you, Allison!!
The cover is a Hamby overlay and then layered with fabric paper, stitching, rub-ons and some gorgeous Prima flowers.
This spread had lace and doilies - Shimmerz Spritz misted batting and more Hambly.
I found this fabulous old magazine in my stash and thought the Diamond Dye ad fit perfectly - the background is collaged dress maker tissue painted over with Shimmerz Paint - Hottie Pink and then some vintage buttons from my grandma and more Hambly.
A tag I made using Shimmerz Spritz, stamping and a Hamby rub-on. I stitched it on leaving it poking out the side.
I love recycling stuff from old projects - the page on the left is part of a card I made that I layered over black corduroy and added some lace and Prima flower. On the right - An Angelina collage piece with stamped images on the Angelina Film - then layered over upholstery fabric and a few extra embellishments.
Painted canvas fabric and then a envelope to hold some stitching tips.
When I was making the dress form masked video, I ended up with several extras and quilted this one and added some Hamby lace doily rub-ons.
The back cover - of course, I had to decorate it, too. The bottom layer is the quilted background from the dress form on the previous page - layered with a heavy chipboard bingo card to add some stability and then gesso painted muslin with a Hambly rub-on, finished with some little bits and Prima.
Thanks for holding out through this long post - hope you enjoyed it! :)
