Something girly

Hello my blog friends!  Here with another challenge for the Papercraft Star!  This week our challenge theme is to create something girly!  What a fun theme!  I knew I wanted to alter a a piece I found at a thrift store in my area.  I first prepped this set of mini drawers with gesso paint.  Once it was painted with gesso I then sprayed painted it with heirloom white paint.  Next using images from The House Across The Bay I covered them with images from sheets 233, and 043


Starting with the drawer fronts I opened and image from the Pink Me sheet 233 and sized it to fit the fronts perfectly, and printed it on printer paper.  Using Mod Podge I adhered the image.  The pulls are buttons that I adhered using E600 for a secure hold.  

On the side of the drawers I adhered another image from the Pink Me 233 sheet that was sized in Photo Shop to fit the side.  I then added an image from the Jane Austen Fashion Show 043 sheet which I fussy cut and adhered to on top of the Pink Me image.  I just love how she looks in that dainty dress!  Now talk about girly!!!  

On the opposite side I adhered the same background to the side but this time I choose another image from the Jane Austen Fashion Show 043, which I fussy cut.  The entire sheet is filled with these gorgeous vintage images!  

The top is adorned with a hand made pink satin flower which I added a vintage button to the center.  Some lace and a felt flower were also added along with some pearls and buttons.  

This little project is by far my favorite!  I hope you give this challenge a try!  I'd love to see what you come up with!  Just link your project to our Papercraft Star blog by Monday 6:00 a.m EST for your chance to win some of these amazing images from our sponsor The House Across The Bay.  Be sure to check out what our designers have for you.  The inspiration is amazing on each of your DT's blogs!  

Hugs, Anitra
