Royal Queensland Show


This is my second entry into the Fine arts section at the show this year.
I was so excited to be awarded second prize for my project.

I painted a Kaisercraft Advent Calendar box and also painted the drawers and inside and out.
I covered the drawers with Couture Creations Vintage Rose Garden papers and added drawer knobs  from Kaisercraft.



 On top of the box I created a scene with flowers, sewing machine, artist easel, mannequin and sewing basket and paper rolls as well as  teddy.
I finished the top of with timber alphas.


I papered the centre opening with Couture Creations Vintage Rose Garden and added a couple of miniature cupboards filled with various craft and sewing notions, miniatures of some of my greeting cards. I also added a sewing machine and mannequin.


I filled the drawers with tiny plastic containers filled with beads, sequins buttons and various small craft items.
 
I would like to add my project to the following challenges:

This is my Circus project which I entered into the Fine Arts Section of the Royal Queensland Show ..or the Ekka as we call it in  Queensland.

I started with a Dusty Attic Photo Carousel which I painted.
I have used Graphic 45  Le Cirque for the project



  I have layered the rotating panels with Graphic 45 patterned papers. I cut and
3d -ed the clowns, acrobats and animals etc with each panel showing a different aspect of the circus.


I embossed black card for the top and bottom edges and added stars rhinestones and tiny 3d clowns and acrobats


The laser cut panels are fixed so I cut and layered a carousel horse for each of these
