The pink and gold background is brocade fabric.
A few days before my stuff came from Alpha Stamps, I met my friend Sue Young for lunch. As a present, she gave me a piece of her art and a picture stand with which to display it. Both items were sitting on my work table when the box came from Alpha Stamps. I unpacked the box and began playing with the small set of chipboard shoes; making them walk etc. The kind of silly stuff kids do. All of the sudden synapses started firing in my brain. I looked at the picture stand and looked at the shoes and I thought “these would be perfectly for the base of a picture stand”. The package from Alpha Stamps also included some chipboard tags, which I thought would work great for the back of the stand. I guess the moral of the story is, do silly things with your art supplies, you never know what might happen.
