What do you do to protect yourself?

 Hello from a sunny west country!  Yep, finally Summer appears to have arrived...lets hope it decides to unpack its suitcase and stay a while!

Last week on WOYWW  was a small orange dolls dress.  I gesso'd the dress, stamped it and made a chain belt for it which I attached small items, a wrench, sewing machine etc....all items that a woman has at her disposal as part of her daily life.

The box was a left over freebie from fellow Coven member Trace and Julie's dad gave me some edging-thanks girls.  I thought I would make something to represent a Woman's Armour-some days we wear certain clothes to protect ourselves (a suit for  a meeting may put us in the right frame of mind for example) but I find that being a woman means I can do ANYTHING....so long as I have the correct tools (and a large dose of bloody mindedness!)

 The box represents all the tools a woman uses, clothes, a bit of bling, food, sewing, timekeeper, keeper of family contacts and memories.....so many tools!

The box was covered in vintage book pages and whitewashed with a little distress ink to add some age, I added feet which were old domino's.

A one of  a kind piece, I put my heart and soul into it, and I must admit, I really quite like it-it's not my usual style but does sum up my determination to try and do EVERYTHING in my life!!!!

I am entering this into the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge which is Hey Girl and can be found here

I hope you get to enjoy the sun for those in the UK, and Happy Crafting
