Pocket Full of PosiesI was asked if I would like to make an inspirational piece of work for this month for the Indigoblu Blog Challenge and of course I said Yes!

The theme is 'A Pocket Full of Posies' and full details can be found HERE
Below is a pictorial guide to my project which is a 'lamp'Pocket Full of PosiesPocket Full of Posies So I started with the naked products above.Pocket Full of Posies I painted the bodice pale blue so that when I added the decoupage paper it wasn't dulled from the original colour, I would recommend doing something like this even if it is Gesso just to help the colours pop.Pocket Full of Posies I drew around the sides of the 'shade'Pocket Full of Posies Using a Stormy Sky Distress Ink pad I coloured the card.Pocket Full of Posies I used Weathered Wood to stamp the cloudsPocket Full of Posiesand I used black Versafine to stamp the border (Poppy Meadow is another stamp that would be good for this) Pocket Full of Posies Once I had glued the pieces in place I inked the edges using Stormy Sky.Pocket Full of Posies I added a plain square for the top.Pocket Full of Posies This is the first time I had used these decoupage papers and I found them to work really well, they have a coating on them that keeps them strong while still keeping them flexible unlike some other papers I have used.Pocket Full of Posies I had these sweet flower bead on stems in my stash and used them to make a 'necklace'Pocket Full of Posies A very quick and simple addition.Pocket Full of Posies To make the apron I used some green fabric from my stash and using a Mowed Lawn ink pad I stamped on the Anenome design.Pocket Full of Posies I added a pocket with a flower shaped button and some lace to finish it off.Pocket Full of Posies I used double sided tape to secure it around the waist and at each corner of the hem.Pocket Full of PosiesUsing a tube I found from rummaging through my stash I glued the shade and base together.I have thoroughly enjoyed making this piece and hope you are inspired to have a go yourself!Pocket Full of Posies
