Dress Form Ball...
Last year Carol held the 1st annual Dress Form Ball and I enjoyed it very much. She is once again hostessing the 2nd annual Dress Form Ball. You know Carol of Polka Dot Closet and her amazing creative talents. Click her link and see what she has shared previously about dress forms and how to alter them.
So I have had this paper mache form for a couple of years just sitting and waiting for my attention. I mentioned this to Judy of jfabrications and she promptly got me into action. Judy is currently altering the most amazing forms and will be doing a wonderful display and sale at her local museum in Australia. Here is a great video she shared on the making of dress forms. http://www.yourepeat.com/watch/?v=InJKZTeaDm8&feature=youtube_gdata#.UR9H8-GeFxY.blogger
This doesn't look right but you can access the link from Judy's blog I linked.
Here is my paper mache form. It is table top and only about 12 inches tall. I have a vision for this but just never got busy. Thank you Judy for the push I needed.
I gathered my Mod Podge and dress maker pattern tissue. You see the scissors but I ended up tearing most of the pieces as I liked the torn edge better than the sharp cut edges.
Here is my progress. The form is now covered in pattern tissue and Mod Podge...very messy! I will leave it to dry overnight or longer. Now my muse will contemplate how to decorate this. I am hoping to participate in Carol's Dress Form Ball this year. Having a deadline helps me I hope.
I spent my day at the local Chamber hostessing the Visitor Center. It got pretty busy as today was President's Day (I hesitate to say Holiday as that just doesn't seem fitting for our past presidents). I love meeting and chatting with people who come to our little charming historic town. http://www.nevadacitychamber.com/
Rain and snow predicted for tomorrow. Winter is definitely not over here in Northern California.
Happy Hearts are Creative Hearts. I am grateful for my followers...each of you and your comments. I read every one and "listen" to what you have to say. Keeping my muse busy!
