Drop Dead!

Hi everyone, me again {Alix} with a wee offering for your amusement and possibly inspiration.

I've really enjoyed doing this project. I've used the Drop Dead Red pp (which can be found here) and a wooden blank {you could just as easily use thick card to cut out the shape} to make a door hanger for a stroppy teenage girl. I've painted the blank with acrylic paint and used glue to attach the torn strips of pp and the skull that I cut out with scissors. I've then added the felt shapes from the Die Cut Felt Sheets. Actually the shapes I've chosen are officially the *waste* but I really liked thier quirky swirly nature so I used them anyway!


I then inked the edges in black using a permanent inkpad, added gemstones to one of the felt shapes and to the torn strips. I tied a heart charm on with some oddments of ribbon {there are a huge selection of charms here}, added a holographic flower shaped button and another piece of ribbon near the bottom and placed one spotty flower with a red gem centre at the top. And there you have it...


This is exactly the sort of thing I would have loved...and I dare say there are a few stroppy teenagers left in the world now...do you know any of them?? {I do!!!}
