Yes, it is Challenge time over at eclectic Paperie!! Yipeeee :-)
And yes I made another Dress Form...actually I made three more and gave them all as gifts...
Then I had to make one for myself!!!
So the challenge by our DT Member Annette Green was to be monochromatic...
I not only wanted a dress form for my room but I also wanted to make this an "Angel" to commemorate my two Grandmothers that have passed but have always inspired me!!! The both of them left me (the only granddaughter) all their sewing/vintage possessions. *insert BIG smile*
See that fuzzy little critter...my Grandmother had a dozen of them in her hope chest...wish I knew why?? I had to add them :-) Love the filigree butterfly!!
The wings were made by cutting chip board and plastic wings from Tim Holtz's Big Butterfly Die...it's an oldie but a goodie :-) For the plastic wings I used the shapeable plastic material Clearly For Art from Wendy Vecchi.
Here is a close up of the jewelry I made from Tim Holtz metal parts and odds and ends. The Wooden Spools came from Maya Road...I used two sizes long and short. I painted them and added lace and silk thread/trim from Grandmother's sewing box. That is a vintage needle case that sits at the bottom...it's leather!!! How cool is that!!! It contains huge needles for making sails?? Why would Nana need those LOL
I also included Nana's metal thimble :-)
I painted the base of the dress form with Copper Viva Decor Paint. It gave it a beautiful brown shimmer...that paint is amazing!!! Photos do not do it justice :-(
I know I already made one of these for one of our previous challenges and you will find more info on how to make this form there.
Thanks for stopping by
Peace Out :-)
