Vintage Dress Form

Hi Everyone, today for my DT post with Craft Consortium I am sharing with you another of their New Release Decoupage Papers, this one is called Vintage Butterfly.

I started off with a Paper Mâché Dress Form and gave it a coat of Gesso. Next I tore my Decoupage paper into sections measuring about and inch and a half and layered on with Mod Podge.

Next stage was giving it a layer of Decoart Crackle Glaze and once dry I rubbed in some Antiquing Cream to highlight my crackles and adding a coat of Gloss Varnish to seal.

Adding on some fringing you would normally see on the edges of furniture or cushions and equally as effective for my Dress Form. Also placing on some swirling Black gems for extra detail.

For a quirky touch I fussy cut out a Butterfly from the Flutter of Butterflies Decoupage papers and added a few gems.

My Necklace was made from bits in my Craft Stash.

My stand also was given a crackle effect to compliment the Dress Form, finishing off with a layer of Gloss Varnish and adding a little bow and Heart.
