Here's what I'm working with today:
It has a good shape but that
peach ribbon and lace has to go!
I wanted a bluish green wash and luckily I had this paper on hand from Basic Grey (which must be the most ironic name ever).
Should I have left it like this?
It looks pretty good!
It was hard to decide what kind of "trim" to put at the top. One of my favorite things about this piece is that curvy line at the top of the boot and I didn't want it masked like it had been with the lace. In the end I decided on some flower paper, cutting out the petals along the bottom to make a sort of lacy edge.
Then I needed some blue paint to match the paper but I wanted it to be somewhat transparent so you could still see the washed look of the paper. The glitter paint I used on my frame yesterday was the perfect solution! I mixed it with Mod Podge and piled it on.
