Here is my lastest creation, inspired by my love of the dress form and my need for somewhere to keep my tonne of necklaces.
My starting point was a metal jewellery stand and a papier-mâché dress form. I sawed the stand in half and inserted into the dress form using hot glue to secure. Using ‘ModPodge’ I covered the dress in patterned paper from BoBunny’s ‘ETC’ range. With some paper I sewed around the edge using a sewing machine to give it a textured look, with other paper I stamped on using the Tim Holtz ‘Haberdashery’ range and also Crafty Individuals ‘324’ and inked around the edges using Tim Holtz ‘Distress Inks’ and embossed.
To embellish, I made a skirt by sewing and pleating a BoBunny ‘Ribbon Wrap’ and a ruler ribbon as a belt. To complete I used a BoBunny ‘Petals’ flower, some dress pins, gems and sentiment stickers and inked flowers using Tim Holtz ‘Tattered Florals.’
