When Jo sent me out some chipboard for me to use in a project she included a gorgeous little chipboard dress form that I have been dying to use. So at the weekend I was home with the flu and everyone else it seems was at SENZ I thought it was a great opportunity to use this little piece. Here is the finished project.
I took a small 6x4 canvas and painted the edges with lavender, pink and aqua paint. I then glued on some Kaisercraft Fairy Tales paper.
I painted a chipboard corner flourish with the aqua paint then stamped it with a script stamp and then glued it on to the corner of the canvas. I then used some sequin waste as a stencil and added some spots using warm white paint. I also added beads to some of the gaps in the flourish.
Using Dusty Concord Tim Holtz distress ink I inked up some pieces from a book page and added them to the canvas to give a bit more visual interest.
Here is the chipboard piece that Jo sent me, isn't it lovely?. I sprayed the chipboard with Raisin and Cranberry distress sprays and then I added embossing powder to the bodice and randomly to the skirt. I then covered everything with clear embossing powder.
For the skirt I wanted something with a bit of 'Puff". I didn't want just flat paper underneath. Sousing the same sprays I used for the chipboard I sprayed a tissue and dried it with the heat gun. I scrunched it up and then glued the dress form on to the tissue. This has given a lovely 3D effect on the skirt.
I added wings cut from the Kaisercraft paper line and glued everything to the canvas. I inked up one of Imagine If's quotes from her Wings and Things quote sheet, added beads and adhered that to the canvas as well. I also added blue beads to the bottom of the skirt, mounding them up for dimension.Here is a close up (excuse the glue I took a picture before everything was dry), that's me too impatient to wait.
I hope you enjoyed this little project as I think it is quite a sweet little one and I believe it really showcases Jo's lovely chipboard.
Thanks for coming to my blog to see my project and I look forward to the next blog hop with Jo and the other girls.
