Happy News and Meet Miss Dolly!


Hard to believe but this time last week I was over in Retford, home of the fabulous IndigoBlu HQ and their amazing team! I had two fabulous days working along side some incredibly talented Ladies and of course the uber talent that is Kay Halliwell-Sutton!

The outcome being that I am now one of their new official demonstrators - yippppeeeeee - very excited as you can tell, so I've been a little quiet since I came home as I've been busy making samples to take out with me, I'll share some more of these over the next few days.

This is my Summer Mannequin, using the beautiful Dinkie Flutterby stamped in Peacock Brilliance ink onto tissue and then slapped on with, yes you guessed, Slap It On Matt. She also has Mega Flake wings, flittered on to some packaging, as it was sturdier than acetate, and I though it would travel a little better.
The she has been finished off using bits of lace trim, ribbons and beads from my stash.


The beauty of altering a Mannequin it that when you get fed up of what she's wearing, you can paint over and start again, simples!
