Dressed up






Today I played with my little stash of Scrapmatts products that I had been given at the Penrith show earlier this month...thanks Andrew and Sofie for you friendship and generousity :)
I'm a big fan of vintage designs and I adore these traditional dressforms. They were already black, so that saved painting, I simply smere a little silver rub n' buff over the entire piece to give the chipboard a metalic look. I used a scrap of dress pattern paper to back the form and once the glue was dry I cut the stand off and glued it behind and gave the entire form a little bend and curve to give it some dimension
