Hi There! Sarah here today with a new altered project to share! I have used one of the gorgeous new Creative Embellishments Chipboard Victorian Fans, along with Graphic 45’s Portrait of a Lady collection to create this elegant Portrait of a Lady Victorian Fan!

I started by joining the fan pieces together using cream coloured ribbon. Then I covered both sides of each fan piece with papers from the Portrait of a Lady collection (12×12 Patterned Paper and 12×12 Patterns and Solids). I inked the edges of all the paper with Distress Ink in Old Paper. I fussy cut portraits and flowers from the 12×12 and 8×8 patterned papers to decorate the front of the fan and used three Mini Frames and two Door Knockers to mount the fussy-cut portraits on each of the fan pieces. I embossed the frames and door knockers with Stampendous Aged Ivory Embossing Enamel. I also added a string of half pearls around the mini frames on two of the portraits.  I finished off the Fan with a Tasseled Wrist Strap, a floral charm, a mirrored charm and a Graphic 45 Chipboard Element from the collection. Here are some more photos and close-ups!
