Anchors Aweigh Tablet Stand!!

Hey Everyone!! I hope you all had a great weekend! I'm back with another Design Team project for the Jiggery Makery blog.
This time around I decided to alter a tablet stand that hubby had made to create a unique and functional piece.
I used one of Adele's awesome pin up digis, "Josie", as the main focal image.
This is a great 1940's-esque image to color or paper piece.
I used both my alcohol markers and paper piecing to bring the image to life.

Here's the pic for you to check out:

I used a 4 3/4 ×7 3/4" wooden tablet stand that hubby had made and painted a few coats of gesso over the top.
Once dry, I used a pencil and ruler to create 1/2" strips across the stand.
I used a Bic MarkIt marker in "Yellow Gold" to color the stripes in.
I set it aside to dry and began work on the image.

I printed the image out and used my alcohol markers and paper piecing to bring her to life.
Here's a rundown of the colors I used:
- Skin - Blush, Dusky Pink, CR3
- Hair - C02, C04, C07
-Anchor - C02, C04, C06, C08

I used some red polka dot paper to paper piece the scarf, shoes and blouse.
For the shorts and hat, I used a blue patterned paper.
I used my C02 and C04 markers to add shading to the pieces.
I added some detailing with a white gel pen and Glossy Accents.
I fussy cut the image, and adhered it to the background.

To finish it off, I added a handle, twine and stars.

                                                     And ta-da!!Tablet stand complete!!

                                              I hope you enjoyed this project for today!!
                           Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the rest of your day and Peace!! :)
