Scrap Challenge

Remember this assortment of fabrics from the scrap challenge. 10 different fabrics,turn them into something fabulous. I kicked around a few different ideas. But in the end I knew I had to do something with bees wax. DUH!!!!! kind of a no brainer. If you don't know by know I love bees wax.

So here she is in all her glory. Even a little crown to top her off. Leaf shapes were cut and hand sewn then dipped in wax. Applied to a mannequin that also has a wax treatment on it. Click on the pics to see a larger view.
The brown leaf really took on a leather look when dipped in the wax

Perfect Pearls was added to the leaves to give them shine and glimmer. Here is the flickr group of everyone work
