Altered Dress Form with Dana


Hi!  Dana here today sharing a paper mache dress form that I altered with supplies from my Zeus and Zoe Kit. The mix of vintage charms, jewelry and lace that came in my kit is fabulous and I highlighted some of those special pieces on the front of my form.


One of my favorite pieces from my kit is this stitched butterfly.  Someone spent a lot of time creating this beauty! I love the intricate design and pop of color it adds to my piece.


Here is the back of my form. I separated the petals of a Manor House Creations flower and used them to make the wings. I used the fun flower center to top the bow that I tied with some pretty May Arts ribbon.


I added the subtle shimmery color to my form with Lindy Stamp Gang Starburst Color Shots in Cape Cod Coral and Clam Bake Beige.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! If you're looking for a fabulous vintage kit that is personalized to your tastes, just contact Marivic and she'll get you all the details. Also, there is still time to enter the April Challenge.  Click HERE for all the details.

Dana..What a good idea for the flowers. I agree with the comments above. Very feminine and dainty but yet it has a steampunk feel to it without the grunge. Well done! Thank you!!
