Challenges 4 Everybody #16 DT

Hi everyone, this week at Challenges 4 Everybody I have a Journal page that I have been working on.  I purchased this lovely dress form stamp from Kaisercraft and just had to ink it up..  With this page I started with tearing up papers that had a dress pattern on it and sticking it down with mod podge.. I then sponged over it with a beige and white acrylic paint..  I put holes in the side on the left and got a bit of thread and did a bit of hand stitching.  Stapled the lace on the bottom of it as I just wanted a bit of texture.. The flowers where all white, I sponged them with pink and painted the buttons for the centres so they where the same color.  I stamped with a word stamp here and there just to add a little something, then got the hexagon stencil out and sponged in pink..  The sentiment, it so fitted my theme. I had never heard this before and just knew it was the perfect one for me.
'Chains do not hold a marriage together.  It is threads, hundreds of tiny threads which sew people together through the years' Quote from Simone Signoret. 
Isn't it just a lovely quote.
