Dress Forms are the "in" thing at the moment...... chipboard, rub-ons,paper. I bought a papier-mache one a while ago after seeing an "altered" one by Teemie Eschenburg in a book called Altered Art Projects. Any way after a sad conversation with my beautiful 20 year old daughter, who had just had her heart broken, I thought I would have a play....... chains, locks and wire immediately came to mind, not quite sure why,but this is what I ended up with.
What I used: papier-mache mannequin, modge-podged, papered, painted and distressed. Collections elements papers and spools. Tim Holtz buttons, baubles and locket keys. Satin ribbon, velvet and dyed muslin Tiny pearls, pins, wire and chain.
