Regency Lady Vintage Canvas !

Morning ! 
I have a canvas for you today with antiqued finish. I love the Regency period and everything Jane Austen so this was my inspiration for this project. I am also Textile and Fashion trained and went to college in Regency Bath many moons ago now but I remember how lucy we were to have access to study some beautiful fashion plates from that era and also visit the fabulous Museum of Fashion in Bath. They made quite an impact on me and by doing a Google search found some gorgeous fashion plates online - this is one of my favourites.

The canvas is a cheap and cheerful one and I've downloaded my lady onto vellum and then used PVA glue to paste her to the canvas so I got a wrinklely effect ! Before that I inked my canvas with two shades of sepia and then stamped some lettering on top before using my heat gun to set and dry the inks. 

Here is a little more detail - I made the large flower ( which is becoming a bit of a signature flower for me ! ) from stamped recycled tissue paper and the others are from my stash. The flourishes are die cut and the paper lace is punched out from left over strips.

These projects cost next to nothing to make - the canvas was in a pack of two for £3.99 ! It's quite sizeable - the printed lady is almost A4 ! 
This is just one of the projects I am doing in my classes this term and there is always room for new ladies so if you live in the Worcestershire area and wish to join please contact me via the link on my profile above and I will be pleased to give you a call ! 
Thank you so much for taking the time to check out my blog ! Have a great day -hugs Jane x
