Altered Dress Form using Foamiran

Well how the heck are you on this fine Wednesday evening? Me, ok. I wanted to jump in here and share a project I made for Magnolia-licious using some of that crazy foamiran. Not only can you use it to make flowers, but on this project, I used it to make the dress. I truly love love how this turned out. Although there are a few spots that I need to replace with a couple new petals. And maybe a few fillers. But over all, it really was an easy project.

The photos below show the progression of how I put this together for the most part. But you get the idea. If this inspires you to make something, I would love to see what you come up with. Leave me a link in the comment section, and I'll come and visit you.

 14 Craft Bar -flower die
Lemon Craft - Forget Me Not pattern paper
wire dress form- from my vintage stash...prolly had her for a good 10 years....

painted it with gesso

I don't remember how many petals I cut...I had to cut more and more and I lost count...sorry

measured and cut the under coat of the dress. ...this lets me have something to glue the petals on

 I started at the bottom with a row of fringe ribbon...then I started layering the petals

 here she is, all finished....I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to take photos of the top part...I just used a piece of paper to cut for the top as a guide...once I got the right size, then I cut a piece of pattern paper and glued it to the frame. All I did was follow the frame to glue...

this is the back view....I love how the sheer ribbon plays off of the petals for a bit of elegance....

Well, I hope that you enjoyed my little project using foamiran...I really love how this turned out....Thanks for stopping in today and hope you have a great day...hugs from Charm City
