Marie Antoinettes fan


Boo hoo! this was a reject from Stampington company.

You get to see it anyway.

Made the fan and then decoupaged it, antiqued and crackled it and added gold leaf. Glitter and paint too.

Vintage button and tassel at the bottom.

The fan really works, we need it in Hawaii. It is very hot and humid now.

This is really cool Lilla! What a great idea! I think it should not have been rejected...
What material did you decoupage the pics on?

Wow Lilla, all I can say is WHY? It is beautiful, and I think the fan a good choice for the era, plus your work is always outstanding.

Well Stampington are fools, these are the best looking fans ever! And I mean that. Very nice detail

Some nerve they have. Maybe they need glasses. I love it and YES I am prejudice. It is lovely Lilla. Sharon

Lilla

Your fan is one of the prettiest I have seen. Why ever Stampington rejected it is astonishing to me. I have seen some great stuff and somne terrible stuff in their magazines. This is first class. You are too good for them.

Oh Lilla, this fan is the most beautiful fan I have seen. I too have had a rejection from Somerset,recently, don't take it personally, they have reasons we can't imagine. I think it is just fabulous!

This was too nice to reject - it's beautiful and their loss! This is better than some of the Marie things they have featured in my opinion!
