Dress Form Anyone?...


This is my dress form design for a swap at Life on the {Scrap}Beach. I used chipboard as the base which was cut out with the Tim Holtz Sewing Room die. I painted that with silver acrylic paint. I then made another dress form cut out of self-adhesive metal, this time cutting off the foot and head of the dress form and embossing it with a Sizzix embossing folder and then painting it with blue acrylic paint. The bottom of the dress is made out of metal that was cut using an on-the-edge die. I embellished the dress form with chains, a metal snowflake and a metal bottle cap filled with glitter and metal beads which was topped off with glossy accents. I also added some tulle for a little "femininity." I hope my swap partners enjoy this as much as I enjoyed making it.
