Blue, brown and pearls

And finally I have the spare time to do some non DT challenge work!

So this poor bare cardboard S has been sat on my desk for a month or so now waiting for something to happen and finally it has... I finally got inspired to work on it when I saw this weeks Colour Create challenge 'Blue and brown, extra options lace and pearls' ok so I didnt use lace as the only lace i have is black and it looked wrong.. and it also fits the Lots To Do theme 'Alter It'.
I've used:
  • 3d cardboard mache S
  • Brown dotty paper (Anna Stemplewska)
  • 2 paper blue flowers (poppicrafts)
  • 2 x 6mm pearls
  • Lots of mini pearls
  • Lots of patience lol
  • Hot glue

A brilliant creation Steph! So glad we inspired you to do something with that 'S' it looks fantastic. I don't think it needed the lace anyway - the pearls finish it off beautifully. Thanks for joining the Colour Create Challenge.
