My oldest may have ADHD, but she sure can concentrate when it comes to her art and her journals. She loves to create at her desk in my studio. I was amazed with the way she picked up on how I mounted Marie and her chair.
I can't even begin to tell you how many layers of paper I used. I wanted it to be as three-dimensional as possible.
I painted some old wooden spools and wrapped them in this ribbon that seemed to be made to go with this theatre.
I love the curtain that falls behind this paper chair that is decorated with vintage glass bead flowers. I also used several layers of cording on the stage. It has to be over the top, in my opinion, to be Marie.
I made this medallion by using Crystal Effects by Stampin' Up. I love this stuff! It makes your paper design appear as if behind glass.
Here is my daughter's box when it is closed. She spent a lot of time adding all of her layers as well. If she keeps this up, who knows what greatness she will create as an adult.
I had no idea she had made the Queen and her chair until she told me to open it up. I was just so proud!
And guess what... just when you thought I was done with Marie, there's more. I am currently working on a Marie Antoinette round robin book. Talk about bling! I will also share more of my round robin travel book. Hope you are all having beautiful spring days. We had snow one day and open windows the next. Cheers!
