More Paper Than Shoes Guest Designer!

I was so lucky as to be selected to be a guest designer over at More Paper Than Shoes for the month of September.  I received a box full of wonderfulness on Friday night after a long day at work.  The flowers are just amazing.  Her roses are stunning.  I was immediately drawn to this red rose out of all the flowers that I received.  I knew that I wanted to alter a dress form for my first project.

I covered the dress form in vintage dictionary pages and modge podge and created the skirt using Webster's Pages trim I picked up at the Paper Niche.  Anna had sent me the crocheted trim and I had the gray rick-rack in my stash.  I knew I wanted to use the red flower, but it was missing something, so I used a vintage mini cake pan I had snagged from Amy and made a stand for the dress form, which gave me so much more room to embellish :D

I'm totally in awe and love at the same time with her roses, they are just amazing.  I have to make a few layouts as well with some of the flowers, but I have all these ideas for altered goodies instead, maybe only one layout!!  I have so many more goodies that the Amazing Anna sent me from More Paper Than Shoes! 

This is the collection that the red & yellow rose came from.  There are a bunch of new collections that are going to be released soon!  You can see them now if you check out and like More Paper Than Shoes on Facebook!!
I'll be creating more fun projects with the rest of my flowers over the next week so make sure you check back to see the rest of her amazing flowers!!!
