Well, here we are. the last day of the 2012 Artisan Blog Hop! I hope you have enjoyed it!
We want you to know that there is now an official Artisan Pinterest Board! You can follow the board and see everything in one place! Awesome! Check it out HERE!
So Cindy showed you her last, amazing project today. And, here is mine as well. I’ve saved the best for last!
I created this dress form from First Edition DSP and many, many other tools. I bought the paper mache body at a craft store and mounted it on a dowel and then on a wooden base, also bought at the craft store. I sat down one night and just started dressing her. I actually did the whole thing in one evening! I think out of all my projects, this was the easiest! It just flowed. Love that!
The bodice was made using the Doily Sizzlet and the Latice Die. The “cups” are Circle Scallops.
There are about 5-6 layers to the skirt. The bottom two layers were made with the accordion die.
I added vellum cardstock inside the bodice, crimped it all and then added Dazzling Details.
About 4-5 layers of lace pleats, several satin ribbon layers and a band of twill tape.
These were curled around a marker.
And every girl needs a pearl necklace for her best dress right? These are the Basic Jewels and White Twine.
The base had a “gift box” made from the Nugget Box. The “mirror” was flashing and Crystal Effects. The base and dowel were inked with a sponge and Soft Suede ink.
Sigh… I love her. I hope she is sitting on the desk of a SU concept artist somewhere and serving as inspiration.. LOL!
