I wasn't sure what this was going to be when I first started this project. I had a paper apron in mind, but I don't sketch anything out. I just fly by the seat of my pants! I started with the purple floral paper that's in the middle and added the side panels in green and purple. I had some brown craft sheets that I ruffled and attached with hot glue. The pinkish flowers are cupcake liners...now here's the funny part...I bought a jug of diet cran-grape juice and it tastes like...NOT GOOD! I didn't want to waste it, so I dunked the white cup liners in it just to see what would happen...VIOLA...a pretty pink shade! I scrunched them up in a square of tulle and attached along the ruffle.
I didn't like the plain purple and green paper, so I stamped used white tissue paper with CATHERINE MOORE paperdoll art stamp, an apron and patisserie stamp. I used distressed ink from TIM HOLTZ and just stamped it randomly. I added lace trim here and there. The pocket is a post card from CAVALINNI which I adhered with eyelets and glue. The spoon and key hanging from the pocket are also from TIM HOLTZ.
I have it tied around a rattan plant stand in my dining room. I think it adds a festive touch. Hope you like it!
