Hello friends. You may have seen a few videos on YouTube involving wrapping a doll in plastic wrap and creating a papier mache bodice for an art dress? Well, I looked at them and thought, hmmm, wonder if I could make a dress using the Tim Holtz dressform die for the base.
So let me introduce my very first art dress, she's very classy and I've called her Marianna,
A layer of gathered wide lace site on top of the tulle and then this was decorated with pearl trimmed narrow lace. The lovely folded bit at the front was done with music paper trimmed with pink lace and then glued in tiers into the space left by the other layers. Much easier to do than it sounds and there's a video here if you want to see it for yourselves. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5NVwBXujDz0
After fixing some roses at the waist and a little heart locket, I wanted to do some more with the back. Here it is.
Thanks so much for popping over - I really appreciate your visit and any comments you might kindly leave me, they mean a lot. Margie x
