Hello, it's time for a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday
and for this fortnight the theme is Children
As always, it's up to you how you interpret this - something for a child, something featuring children, there's lots of possibilities.
I came across this quote in my stash and thought it just seemed right to go with these two young girls who look as if they are about to leave their childhood behind and embark upon a new chapter in their lives.
I used a piece of greyboard for my wall hanging, I gave it a coat of Gesso before applying PaperArtsy Taupe and then Mermaid paint, which was rubbed over with a baby wipe. There's also bits of stenciling done with Snowflake, although most of it got covered up.
I added some embroidered antique lace that I've hoarded forever, and some tiny tattered florals, keeping to the colours of the embroidered flowers on the lace. I also added more antique lace and some vintage pearl buttons, which are probably from the same era as the photo!
The rest of the DT have some great inspiration for you, so please pop over here

Thanks for visiting, as always, I do appreciate it.
