I Love The New Dress Form!

Hi, I just LOVE using Dress Forms so when I received this new dress form design, I just fell in love with it!They are one of my favourite chippies as you can add lots of fabric and texture to a page or card, and this new one is alittle different as it also has some beautiful flourishes attached to the back of the dress form, which really set of a corner.

I covered the dress form first with pattern paper, then cut around the edges, sanded, then added round piece of fabric which was cut in half, glimmer misted and folded, then tied it in at the waist. To make the top of the dress I folded the fabric over and glued down, creating the top of the dress.
I coloured in the flourish behind with a marker, then added Dimensional Magic to finished it off.


Adding layers by fussy cutting and mounting with foam tape.


I also created this layout using the new borders, ( to new for a code)
I covered the scalloped border with pattern paper, then sanded with a file set around the edges, I really love the affect of using chipboard like this because it gives the piece a more distressed layered look, compared to  the sticker border which is underneath.



Adding more layering chunkness!
