Vintage N Royal

Oooooh!!!! Look at the idea what my 13 year old daughter SUMI came up with for her grandmother's birthday.
The design for the canvas started with her grandma's name - BHARATHRANI (rani means queen in Tamil). She decided that it has to be little vintage and royal.

Base coat is done with metallic gold paint. She layered Heartfelt Arianna bloom lace die with the envelope and the flower, all these are scraps from my previous projects.And she also created the checker look with 1 inch square cards.

Now with the Halie Prima Doll she wanted to create an Indian lady with Sari. I helped her with drawing a rough copy of how a sari looks. She completed the doll with a long plait hairdo, amazing to she how she came up with the sari and the plait.

The flourished chipboard alphabet and the paper doily from Itsy Bitsy. Painted the alphabet with Black paint. Added a golden ribbon and a butterfly.Finished off with a quote about grandma on the paper doily.
