Artisan Design Team Blog Hop Day 10



 

Well, here we are. the last day of the 2012 Artisan Blog Hop! I hope you have enjoyed it!
 
 
 
We want you to know that there is now an official Artisan Pinterest Board! You can follow the board and see everything in one place! Awesome! Check it out HERE!
 
So Cindy showed you her last, amazing project today. And, here is mine as well. I've saved the best for last!
 


I created this dress form from First Edition DSP and many, many other tools. I bought the paper mache body at a craft store and mounted it on a dowel and then on a wooden base, also bought at the craft store. I sat down one night and just started dressing her. I actually did the whole thing in one evening! I think out of all my projects, this was the easiest! It just flowed. Love that!


The bodice was made using the Doily Sizzlet and the Latice Die. The "cups" are Circle Scallops.
There are about 5-6 layers to the skirt. The bottom two layers were made with the accordion die.
I added vellum cardstock inside the bodice, crimped it all and then added Dazzling Details.
About 4-5 layers of lace pleats, several satin ribbon layers and a band of twill tape.
These were curled around a marker.

And every girl needs a pearl necklace for her best dress right? These are the Basic Jewels and White Twine.
The base had a "gift box" made from the Nugget Box. The "mirror" was flashing and Crystal Effects. The base and dowel were inked with a sponge and Soft Suede ink.



Sigh... I love her. I hope she is sitting on the desk of a SU concept artist somewhere and serving as inspiration.. LOL!

  6. This is one of the most amazing SU! projects I have ever, ever seen. It caught my eye right away amongst the various convention sample pictures and I'm grateful you showed us the details up close. I can't believe you did all of this in one evening. The inspiration muses were shining down on you that night!

    Congrats again on your win - you absolutely deserve it!

  12. Wow....totally creative and amazing!! I would be heartbroken to think or know that these creations would end up in the trash! Why doesn't SU display the entries at Convention and the artists could show ID and take them home on the last day? Whatever was not taken by the artist by a certain time could be "discarded" somehow. If I worked at SU I'd be asking to take a ton of stuff home with me:) Just a thought maybe you could pass on since you're on the Design Team?
