There are three responses to a piece of design — yes, no, and WOW! WOW is the one to aim for.

APRIL GUEST DESIGNER – TRUDI HARRISON

We are thrilled to have the amazingly talented Trudi Harrison grace us with her talent this month and as she is also a Design Member of The Scrapcake, she has her very first project to share with us using some of the papers and, of course, some Manor House flowers, on this gorgeous little dressform. Just take a look…

Hi, Trudi here with a little altered project to share with you all.

It is currently Autumn or ‘Fall’ for our OS friends here at the moment.   The colours of the leaves about my place are glorious and I have taken some colour inspiration from them for my following project.

 

I have combined patterned papers from The ScrapCake ‘One Moment In Time’collection with some gorgeous Manor House Creations blooms to come up with this little altered wire dress form.

 

 Some leaves have been die cut from patterned paper– I used  Spellbinder dies for these.  The leaves were distressed and given a light coating of ‘Diamond Dust’ along with a quick spritz of Tattered Angels Patina Glimmer Mist before being arranged and attached around the top of the skirt.

 

A bodice was created from patterned papers.

 

And a corsage has been created from the following Manor House Creations flowers.

The flowers were altered with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists to coordinate

Some Coffee Shop and then a touch of Candy Apple Red for the Wishes Hope bloom.

Yellow blooms from the Taneisha pack were also altered with Coffee Shop.

 

A sweet Fairy Floss bloom from the mixed pack finishes the back detail off perfectly. Again the bloom was altered with some Coffee Shop and then a touch of Candy Apple Red glimmer mists to coordinate.
