She's emerging......almost done! I wanted to have this piece speak of my experience of France.
When I visalize images of France, I think of the architecture...the metal work....the history....the inspiration. So after using the handwritten letters from the 1880's that I found at the fleamarket for her petticoat, I decided to make her gown using grout to represent the buildings in Paris....I crackle glazed it and then added some fabulous metal leaves and flowers that I cut off of a wreath that was hanging on my door. They were perfectly rusted and weathered. :)
The final touches will be the rhinestones that will add the inspiration that I felt as I discovered France.
The photo of Amelie ( my fleamarket hand ) shows my box of rhinestones, ready to be applied. Almost done......
