Dress Form Altered Canvas




This is only the second time I have altered a canvas, a little longer than my last one,this one being  7.5" x 9"...and once again I have thoroughly enjoyed getting messy,lol.
The dress forms are from Craft Shapes Torbay and I have had them for a quite a while, they have sat patiently in a box waiting to be used,lol.
For this canvas,as you can see from the pictures,I have used several bits and bobs, along with some flowers,beads, lace etc. My favourite embellishment is the Humming Bird,which was a brooch my Aunty gave to me,she had found it in a charity shop and bought it knowing I love Humming Birds.I removed the clasp before adding it to the canvas.
I used Cosmic Shimmer Sprays in Vintage Raspberry and Plum Twist....I also used my own mix using Pearl Mica powder for the dress form and center area of the canvas. To finish I then highlighted some of the embellishments with Viva Inka Gold "Platin"

I am entering my canvas in to 2 challenges....
the first challenge is over at.... http://craft-roomchallenge.blogspot.co.uk/...their requirements are that you use some "Old or New Stash"....so my new/old stash is the Dressforms and some Lace.

The second challenge is over at...http://www.crafterscornerindia.blogspot.in/2013/07/crafters-corner-challenge11-anything.html.....and their theme is "Anything Goes"

Thank you to all of you that take the time to visit and leave such lovely comments.
