On this Day - Bride to Be

Hello everyone, hope all is well with you :)
Today I have a project which
was inspired by the wonderful Artist
Julie Nutting. She is famous for her
pretty paper dolls. I do love her books and all her projects she creates are just amazing, 
so she was my inspiration behind this 
Ornate Frame.
These dolls are used in all mix media projects.
I created one a little while back with 
the papers from Kaisercraft,
"On this Day" and today I am sharing it with you all.

Close up of Ornate Framed Bride.

The background is created with texture paste, stamping and inking.

As you can see it is a bride, in totally 
Julie Nutting style,
it's not a stamped image which are around
at the moment. I hand drew the figure of the
lady and top of her dress on to some paper, then cut it out. I then teared strips of paper to create her wedding dress. 
 Adding a few touches
of blooms, texture paste, paper butterflies,
stamping, ribbons, and of course, a little bit of glitter.

That's all for today.
thanks for looking
Take care, Cheers Adriana  XX
