princess of quite a lot

the SPA challenge this week is “stripey legs” … I am still having fun with beeswax … no glue needed

my book board postcard was was first painted … then covered with beeswax and peeled tissue … the bit of lace at the top got a little funky looking after adding the wax … some of the pretty lace detail was lost, so I added smudges of paint which helped it some … I then stamped beeswax impressions around the edges coloring those with layers of paint … the girl scout sticker at her heart is vintage (thank you Carol)

thanks to Lynn for sharing a fun free collage sheet she found at Cleome1 on Flickr, that is where the arms and legs/shoes came from … dress and head are from Paper Whimsy … the rose  ‘scepter’ was inspired by a piece of waxed candlewick … the roses are my photos … I doodled the border for the top

  1. I think she is wearing her Mum’s shoes!! Patti, this is exquisite. I don’t think the little girl is quite sure of her new role but she looks gorgeous. I love the softness of the picture and the fantastic background.
    (PS – Ha! I am glad I have sent someone going to bed with a song that won’t go away!! It has happened to many a time and this is payback).

  24. Patty, when I was elementary school, “Lady Birthday Parties” were all the rage. We used to put on our mothers’ high heels and beads and evencloves (because it was Mississippi in the 60’s) and prance around. Good times. Your little Princess of Quite A Lot brought back many happy memories. Thank you!
