Altered Lady

Happy Friday friends!
Thanks for stopping by Altered Pages today.  
For today's post I have created an altered paper mache bust using Altered Pages collage images, Mailbox Muse stamps, ephemera packs and German scrap from Kunze Deco Accessories.  I hope you like it. 
I will include the supply list at the end of the post. 
Be sure to leave a comment to let us know you were here. 

Beginning stages of trying to decide all the yummy things to use.  The bust is about 2 1/2 feet tall so, this will take a lot of supplies to cover.  I started by adding tons and I mean tons of small, ripped pieces of vintage text.  The pieces needed to be small to easily mold to all of her curves.  Otherwise, I would have ended up with too many wrinkles and bubbles.

Sorry, this one is a bit blurry.  This is just showing all the vintage text pages attached.  This was done using gold matt medium and tiny bits of text pages layer after layer.
In these above pictures you can see that I have began to add butterfly collage images, some random stamped images and light and airy lace.  I also used a bit of a napkin that had some very pretty butterfly and flower images as well.  
 Next, I added some "antique" paper flowers, leaves
and a strand of beads.
You can see in this image below the beautiful German scrap and a bit of pink glitter
washi tape to give her a pretty little necklace to adorn her neck.
I hope you enjoyed this project.  Make sure to stop by Altered Pages to find all the goodies you need to start your next project!
Again, thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT weekend.
Thank you to...
