'Bessie' - by Emma Zappone

Hello 2Crafty friends!
Today I would like you to meet 'Bessie', a stunning 1920's French Cabaret performer.
Life hasn't been easy for Bessie, the stage has come at a cost.
But with all she may have lost, her passion and love of performing out ways the sadness she has felt.
Please put your hands together for 'Bessie'.....

Let's also focus on a few other star performers featured on this page....

ATC - Mini Scissors
Rose Set 1
Lattice Leaf Set
Messy Squares

For this page I wanted to go dark, a little smoky and create a vibe that reflected the image. 
So I painted all the chipboard with black Gesso. 

The Messy Square also had a light paint of Prussian Blue to set it off from the black. The lighting in the photo doesn't quite pick it up. Once dry I added a clear emboss powder to add a little more drama to the chippy. And the little pair of scissors were painted black with a blue wax to finish them off.

The lattice leaves are also in black with a Clear emboss.
I just love how these black elements set apart the layers.

The stunning Rose chippy was treated the same way as the Square, with that slight hint of blue shining through the embossing. 

Bessie and I would like to thank you for stopping by and for all your continued support.
We hope we have inspired you a little.

Stay crafty, Em xx
