A Belt of My Own...

For Project Scrap-Away Challenge 8, we are to create a project using only Black and White colours - strictly not even a tinge of any other colours is allowed. Journalling and Embellishments must all be in Black & White! This was a real restriction! cos shades of grey were not allowed too! but i had fun with this fun... Here's how the belt looks when you wear it... that's my mum in the photo.. :P
I wanted to do something different, a project i have not done before. And so I decided to make a belt from scratch for myself.
I started off with using felt and grunge board to form the parts of the belt. The grunge board is painted white and cut according to the pattern on the felt. These pieces of grunge board were joined using black and white ribbons. I wanted to add something that will dangle when i wear the belt. So i added more ribbons and attached the chipboard Bubble loop at the end with brads and flowers. These chipboards were then painted black and outlined with white marker. Decided to add something like a charm, so i added various textures to Maya Road chipboards which are shopping related. I added different textures with glossy accent, acrylic paint, PP, flowers, blings, eyelets, ribbons, rub-ons and doodling. Both sides of the chipboards were embellished to give a different look. For instance, The hat has a glossy side and a matt side... Looks like leather to me! Hope you like my belt! :) And thanks to Teresa Collins for her precious comments... She said, "Where can I buy one??? This belt is so fantastic. It’s so hip and trendy- and I love how you constructed it."
