Well, that's what it felt like when I was creating this, anyway! LOL! This is the project that I created using the wonderful Chatterbox goodies. The dress form came from Creative Imaginations Bare Elements line and I love the way it turned out! I created the skirt by accordian folding strips of the velvet flocked paper and the glitter paper and then piecing them together. I had to do some paper molding to prevent the edges from showing and to give it a more natural look, but it wasn't too difficult. The tricky part came in creating the bodice! In the even that you were not already aware of this - paper doesn't move like fabric! LOL! It took me a couple of tries to get the right shape cut from my paper for starters and then, once I finally got that to a place I was happy with I worked on the details like the little cutesy neckline and the darts in the front that keep her looking trim! I love the velvet ribbon that I used to create the belt between the separates! I then used the brad elements for the accent at the waistline. In the package, the crochet piece had a brad in the center and the metal piece had a brad in the center. I just removed one of the brads and put them all together to create the accent and I love the texture that the layers show off! Finally, she needed something around the neckline. Originally I had the scarf around the front and not tied, but rather casually thrown around the neck, but that took away from the tiny details on the neckline, so I went with a soft knot in the back of the neck with a shorter trail from the scarf. I really like it! I hope you do, too!
*Okay...I need help! LOL! I am so new to this blogging thing and I just used the link provided by Photobucket.com to put the pictures up, but they don't fit into my template and I don't know how to fix it! If you can help, I'd greatly appreciate it! Thanks! Learning as I go, here, folks! LOL!
