Happy Dress up day...

My daughter is dressing up for school today, we dont' really celebrate much the idea of Halloween only the fun in dressing up in costumes but she does this all year round so what's one more day.  This year I took about 2 months to create this Statue of Liberty costume for her and her American girl doll.

Mbtreasurista DT Sneak Peek Sunday altered frame

Hi everyone it's Kelly.  I am back with a Design Team project for Sneak Peek Sunday at  

I am working on altered frames a lot lately and so for that subject my project is a black, white and brown altered frame 4 x 6.

What I created was from a $1.00 wooden frame from Michaels.  I painted it in black and stamped it white and embossed the words phrase from a Tim Holtz stamp set that I have.  I added a rosette flower and handmade flower along with a cardboard dress form from the Tim Holtz die sewing room collection and then I created a skirt from the cardboard as well and I used white acrylic paint to cover the cardboard and give it that shabby chic look.  Hope you like it!  ~Kelly

Mbtreasurista products used were:  

NEW Chelsea lace glimmermisted in brown
Flat back pearls in peach tone
Paper rose flower glimmermisted
Mini peach paper flowers
White daisy mini pearl trim
Pearl bead spray
Pearl heart drop trim
Ruffled cream lace 
Mesh bling
