Hello Blog Friends,
Just playing around on a smaller 10x10 canvas, I created this piece of art. I squirted small amounts of Decor Art dazzling metallic glaze in luminous gold around the canvas and then used a flat brush to make the swirls. While it was wet I sprinkled Stampendous Frantage tea stained fragments onto the edges of the swirls. After the project was completely done I needed to glue more of the fragments on to fill it in where needed.
I made the dress form base and then the honey comb corset part with Tim Holtz (TH) sewing room die. Then I cut tissue paper with TH layered wings die. The wings and the honeycomb corset were lightly edged using my finger with TH distressed stain in brushed pewter. Then I cut my 100 year old crocheted lace from my mother-in-law's mom.
I attached prima buttons onto the corners over the crocheted lace.
On the honeycomb dress form I put a Webster's Pages piece of ribbon and at the bottom is TH pewter crown. Underneath the dress form is film strip ribbon from TH also. I tacked the middle down with a brad and then left the rest to curl up. The wings were slightly glued down first and curled up the edges a bit. Then I attached the film strip, dress form over that and added the crown.
I received this 1 photo over email so it is not the clearest but this is my 93 year old grandmother and my new grandfather who is 94 after their wedding. She has never worn a expensive dress before and my Aunt provided her pearls and did her makeup. George is very happy and grandma Vi is probably telling someone what to do. lol She is so cute!
