For my piecd I used one of these fabby papier mache torsos as my base, which I painted in white gesso.
I wrapped stripes of TH tissue tape around the body in a bee like fashion and then coloured it all with wild honey distress stain.
When it was dry I randonmly stamped all over the body with Artistic Outpost Serenity stamps in coffee archival ink.
I hand cut a pair of wings from a chipboard sheet from some packaging and covered both sides with TH Kraft resist paper.
I coloured it with an assortment of distress stains on top of picket fence distress stain, making sure I pollished off the excess on the resist parts.
The base for the torso I picked up in a charity shop for £1 and was a silver coloured vase - I think it may be called a pick??? It has a little gridded top (which I have just decided would look pretty cool on the back of the head LOL) to stand the flowers in.
I coloured it with alcohol inks in stream and latte alcohol along with snow cap mixative sponged on with a cosmetic sponge. I did the same with the lid of an olive jar for the head, then rubbed on lightly some inka gold in copper to give them a verdigris effect.
Its glued on with glossy accents.
I cut a circle of Claudines sticky backed canvas and stamped PaperBag studios Little Lulu in black archival ink on to it.
I coloured the canvas with distress stains, spritzed with water to lighten a little, then stuck it to the inside of the lid.
the crown was cut from chipboard with a TH die, coloured with inka gold and distress stickles and flat back pearls glued on.
I heated some beeswax in my meltpot and covered all of the pieces with it including drips in to the lid and the base.
I used furniture tacks to attach the wings and the head and added buttons, twine and some metal embellies including TH token.
