I've been wanting - really wanting - an old dress form. I made the mistake of ordering a new one from Joann's and when it came, it was red. Now I might do a redo but right now I have another idea from a great site The Polka Dot Closet.
I ordered two forms and stands one Sat. and they arrived the next Friday! Then I got out the Mod Podge and printed some sheet music that I had stamped with cool stamps on calligraphy paper. Then I tore the paper up and coated the back of the paper first and then pieced it on my form. I put a coat of Mod Podge all over the form and before it dried I applied a coat of Walnut Ink to age it. The calligraphy paper helped give it an aged look and the ink finished it off wonderfully. I am pleased with my first project of this size.
|So easy and not that messy!|
|I'm going to change the lace on the bottom|
but otherwise I think its so cool!
That's all for today, folks! Doing a little gardening, went to a few sales and decided which treasures to paint or Mod Podge or chalk paint or....
Never a dull moment but we are still tired and recovering from our fantastic sale this past weekend.
