This is the inspiration picture for the Let's Get Shabby's #28 Challenge. I adore the frosting like colors in this picture, the worn aged wood, and the elegance of the chandelier with the draped strings of crystals. This picture inspired me to go through my boxes and books looking for the perfect picture to work with, and rummage through my scrapbooking stash to see what I had to create with too. I found a picture of me wearing a dress my mom made for me for my college sorority Presents. I call this Home Alone II because during my late teens and early 20's if I were home alone with a loaded 35mm camera, I'd dress up and pose in front of my camera to kill time (I've noticed 20 years olds still do this too). I was almost always the one behind the camera taking pictures of friends and family during this period so there are few pictures of me during that time. I'm happy that I did take these pictures because no one would know that I was once young and thin. LOL. I have several of those photo shoots and have already created a Home Alone I, and have added this one to the series. I used an embossing folder and added pink glimmer paint and Ingvild Bolme's lovely fluid brown chalk ink on the large semi-circle; I painted the Dusty Attic large leaf with white crackle paint and stamped it with a script scamp and inked and applied pink liquid pearls on the boarder. And, of course, I can't do anything without adding beads, so I embellished the Dusty Attic key and added a key chain made out of hemp cord and strung some pearls and beads. Here's my take on the challenge, and thanks for stopping by.
