Basically Bare: Sew Altered!

Remember these gorgeous wooden pieces that many older homes had above the windows and doors?  I spotted this at an Antique Shop and decided to make it into a sewing room wall hanging.  I've used the chipboard dress form and painted and added embossing to give it some texture.  Basically Bare has the neatest “bare” products that are perfect for  altering, mixed media, card making and scrapbookers!
