Bra for a Cause

A mid week 'Hello'.  Thank you for stopping by for a visit.

Last week I spent a few nights creating my bra entry for Crop for a Cause 2012 (after procrastinating for a few weeks deciding what to do)  My original idea could not come to fruition so this is what eventuated.  I wanted to create something with significance to the occasion so used the butterfly motifs and resin doves on the creation together with associated words of faith, hope and courage.

 and a few closeups.  The molds and resin had just arrived last week so had a play with the white doves.
 The alpha and pink butterflies are from Martha Stewart paper clay and alphabet molds.
 Bling swirls are Prima.

 I used a ModgePodge and water mix to stiffen the top of the motif then liquid pearls to give it back its shine.

There were far fewer entries than two years ago.  Here is this year's little lineup.

 Amazing what people think of.  Below left "Keep an eye on your Boobs!" and the dark blue one made with Cadbury chocolate wrappers.
However it was the 'Big C' which won over the 8-year-old boy judge. 
I now have two bras as wall hangings in my scrap room.  See my 2010 creation here.  It was created in memory of my grandmother using a lace doily she had crocheted and other vintage lace etc.

Well the final coat of paint has gone on our living/dining room walls so tomorrow night we will be getting things back in order and removing all the masking tape so still a big job ahead yet before any creative time. I am not looking forward to re-gathering and hanging the seven large curtains which are currently at the dry-cleaners though. 

Goodbye for now......
