Bursts of a Lady

When I was searching quotes for my post "My Lady's Presence" I discovered a wonderful quote by Shelly Winters that I just knew a page had to be created for it.

And so I did!  :-)

"I had bursts of being a Lady, but it doesn't last long." - Shelly Winters
"Bursts of a Lady"

Bursts of a Lady

Quote by Shelly Winters
Bursts of a Lady
This was created in my smashbook using part of the paper within it for the upper left side above the Victorian Lady image.  Paper from an Anna Griffith's line completed the other half of that page and fully covers the right side.  The star burst on right was created with a Crafters Workshop stencil and Liquitex Modeling Paste, which when dry was then painted with a rose and brown watercolour mixture.   Two sizes of paper doilies were coloured with Spectrum Noir markers to coordinate and the smaller one cut into 4 sections for the right side.   Gold rose buttons were snipped of their button attachment part and glued to each of the 4 doily sections.  The center Cameo was originally white framed and dismantled to colour with Spectrum Noir marker, then attached to a gathering of lace which was also coloured with the Spectrum Noir markers to coordinate.    The Victorian Lady was a free vintage image (chosen specifically for her sassy look), coloured with the Spectrum Noir markers as well.  The label was one from a set in the Susan Winget line of papers and a marker used for the quote.

This is probably one of my favourite pages I've ever made in any of my journals.  LOL


  1. Love that you began this piece in your Smash Book, Von! I haven't worked in mine for so long...need to revisit it! The quote is so *me* and I am definitely lifting it, my friend! Love that cameo!

    1. Thank you Kay! The Smash Books are really fun, aren't they! I got one for travel when we went to Fremont to see Daddy. Having it pre-backgrounded makes it easy to build a page quickly without a lot of fuss. You are welcome to lift the quote! Can't wait to see what you do with it! OH - the cameo came from Buttons Galore - whole bag of them for a wonderful price! Now that I know they can be colourized, they'll be used in more work to come! Thank you for stopping by!


Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving your comment! I appreciate both. :-)
