I everyone and welcome to this weeks project!
I have altered this Brush Caddy!
This was so easy to put together and so fun to decorate. So let's get started!
The picture above shows the front of the caddy. I used Graphic 45 paper to cover it. I added laces and trim from my stash. I also added beautiful flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. I used several collections from Gina's store. The top left corner I used a small dress form, a heart piece and a leaf flourish. I painted them all with gesso and then I inked the heart with Victorian Velvet distress ink. I then inked the leaf flourish with Forest Moss distress ink. I then inked all the edges with Black Soot. And then added some small open roses in pale pink. The top right corner has a large trellis rose, a smaller black open rose and a cream hip rosebud. I also added another leaf flourish.
The front left bottom I added a frame and a butterfly that I painted and inked and then added the word "Inspire". The bottom front right has a larger dress form that I painted, inked and added pattern paper to along with some flat back white pearls. I then added several different flowers along with another leaf flourish. I gessoed everything to soften it just a bit.
The photo above is the back of the caddy. You can see where I added the Lace boarder strip to the bottom. I inked this with Black soot and used gesso to make it stand out. The next photos are closeups of the larger dress form.
The bottom photo you can see where I added the flat back pearls to the top and to the fringe on the dress form. Also a closeup of the small dress form with heart.
