Hola and Welcome to the B'Sue Boutiques "change it up" blog hop.Master Designer and dear friend Brenda Sue from Bsue boutiques is our host. she has gathered 29 artists who took the challenge to transform and utilize one or all of these 4 beautiful raw brass stampings that you can find at www.bsueboutiques.com
I believe the 29 artist (including myself) are part of the B'sue boutiques creative group on Facebook. There we have monthly challenges that help us keep our mind inspired. The challenge for this month is "vintage flair" so we are "changing it up but with a vintage flair" Ok let's start!I decided to use 2 pieces
This little one (LF09727) and I have known each other for a while, I have used it in many of my designs and Its perfect for layering ( if you know me you know "momma loves her layering")So I grabbed my handy super sharp sheers and without feeling sorry I cut those leaves, filed the sharp parts, sanded some more and then applied some Swellegant darkening patina.I had a beautiful layered filigree that miss Brenda informed me a couple months ago it's a Victorian buckle and I knew that was going to be my center of my bracelet. For the sides I'm using "CUF09815" I have used this fella too but when I put it under the buckle it didn't fit right so... I cut it too!, after all it's changed it up!. What I like about this blog hop is that helps you find the stamping inside the stamping, and that's what I did. Later I realized that I probably didn't need to cut the big stamping but it made it easier for me to rivet everything tight and nice.In my messy table you can see I also have other elements in raw brass where I used Swellegant.
After drilling and riveting the main pieces in place the layering fun begun and I started the composition of my design.My mom always said I had an old soul, I think she is right I'm a vintage gal, and this vintage design it's inspired by a special lady, "Titania" queen of the Fairies in a Midsummer Night's dream of William Shakespeare.
This is "Titania" and this cuff her portrait.
Oh and because we need to adapt our designs to today's fashion, here two ladies wearing 2015 fashion trends that I'm sure those dresses go perfect with my cuff ;)
Thank you so much for reading along and I hope you enjoyed my design and my post. Please don't forget to visit my fellow designers who are part of the hop and share a little love and leave us some comments too! Thank you and have a great day!Cynthia.
