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).
