I haven't finished her but couldn't stand it...I just had to share!
I found a small dress form at the store the other day
and knew it would be wonderful altered.
A few years ago I altered a paper mache dress form
that was really quite large and transformed it into
I used old lace, feather wings, rhinestones, etc.
That's exactly what popped into my mind
the minute I saw this smaller form!
So rather than wait, I thought I would share my steps and progress!
Here she is...about 14 or 15 inches tall....
there were some designs printed on the fabric
but I didn't care for those ~
I've had these sweet angel wings for a while,
probably since last Christmas...
I found them at Hobby Lobby which
they probably have them again as they
are all stocked up for artists and crafters
to create their goodies for the fall
and Christmas shows.
Next, I pulled out the gesso and gave her a good coating....
just so I could paint her a pretty shade of off white ~
The gesso dried quickly and I couldn't even wait to paint her,
I had to play a little bit!!!!
Since this piece will be totally different than my first tattered angel,
I thought I would pull out all of my collected doll dresses
and see if I had one that would work for her....
I found the PERFECT little dress!! Plus I found a slip that I will use as as well ~
This is just pinned in place to give you an idea...
I still have to paint her a beautiful linen color,
antique the stand and begin layering pretty components
that will add to her charm!
Stay tuned dear friends!!!
Wishing you a wonderful Monday,
hugs and love,
