A Shy Smile

I’ve spoken previously of how I happened upon Bella Creations. This group is positively buzzing with activity. Within Bella Creations there are sub-groups, can you believe they even created a group called Jingle Bellas! Anyway, there is a Bella Muse challenge whereby they provide a delightful image for us to incorporate into our artwork. Last month we received a beautiful image of a child. Anything can be created:- scrapbook layout, card, altered art, etc.
On seeing this image I knew I wanted to create something very feminine,so I made a lacy decorative pillow.  Although I wanted a romantic, feminine feel I also wanted a relatively uncluttered look with the image being the main focus. To do so I used white lace and braiding and the only dash of colour comes from the velvet ribbon in a duck egg blue, a glass button and the leaves on the fabric flowers.

    This is a gorgeous creation Lynne, so delicate. I love everything about it. I notice you have laid it on your charity shop find. This is too nice a pillow to lay your head on though.

    This is grogeous. What a pretty little keepsake or gifty. Would make a nice Mother’s Day gift as well.
    Are you going to tell us how you did the transfer?
