Corsets for a Swap





Finished these yesterday. What a lot of fun they are to do.
Who would have thought? Once I started making them, I
went all over the studio looking for things to add to them.
These are for my group, Altered_stART .

The first set here are the B&W one done with scrapbook
cardstock. I put netting over the b&w side, with a "leather"
inset. The back is faux leather paper with the b&w inset.
The Mauve & Gold one is also sb paper and has an inset of
the paper I used for the back. The pearls are from a necklace
I found in a bag of old jewelry at the secondhand store.

Second set, Brown SB paper with some lace trim someone
sent me. Love this little trim. The "buttons" are fingernail
decorations I've had for years.
The pink corset is decorative vellum over pink Bazzil paper.
Then trimmed with some rickrack someone sent me and some
fringe from someone else.

If you get a chance to do ephemera swaps with people,
jump at it. I've gotten some really great items from people
who just didn't want them anymore.
