Pure innocence of white

This weeks theme for Wednesday Stamper is WHITE.
This ATC was a swap I did in January, so new stuff for me.This 42 degree heat just sucks the art right out of me.For the background Ive stamped into texture paste, adding fine glass beads for added texture,highlighted with gold and Jo Sonya's Opal Dust.Added glass beads around the border. FUN.
Yes miss innocent is me, taken on board the Australis in 1972.I'm dressed for a fancy dress party,high hopes from my parents to become Miss Australia 1989.

Yep, still got the butter wouldn't melt thing happening. HA !

Ohh you are just too cute, then and now.... love this dawny, you have def got me hooked on texture paste.... Actually I'm just using it now for my white themed WS canvas, but it's different to yours... yum yum love the stuff, could eat it. Same with Gel Medium.
We are buckling down for a cylone up here, so not as stinking hot as it normally is. THanks for sharing Natxx

Gorgeous work Dawnie, lovin' the texture paste too gotta say and can't you do something about this heat??? Where do I put my order for 25 degree days, 15 degree nights and rain between midnight and 3am every morning? lol

Julie H said...

Giggling at the weather order, from Nat - I like the same, perhaps with a slightly cooler night.

But, I really stopped by to say how much I love the texture and layers in this piece. What a cute face - and those wings are to die for! I can see what yo meant about the work you put in.

Dotee said...

I feel for you with the hot weather over there in the west Dawnie.

The heat makes me grumpy too. I hope it cools down for you soon.

This is just GORGEOUS!! I still see that little girl in you.

I love the textures and layers.
What type of texture paste do you use?

Your art is always so inspirational!

Ev said...

Hey babe, love this, you know the trouble I am having with my texture paste just now and this makes me just a tad green with envy LOL...might try again tonight after seeing this ATC though. I didn't realise I was supposed to put my weather order in...will go with Kelsey's order too ROFLOL.

Hi Dawn, love this textured piece. I find white so hard to work with (just finished some white fabric ATC's for a swap and must admit found it very challenging).
Your ATC is absolutely gorgeous (and obviously so are you!!!)
What is this Wednesday Stampers? Do you make one each week to a certain theme and swap or do you keep them? Sounds interesting!
Take care and hope the heat eases soon.
