Dress Form Canvas

Hello friends! Today I am sharing a canvas that I created using papers from Kaisercraft's Curiosity Collection. I love dress forms and thought that I would use these papers to create one.

I used the Kaisercraft doily template, and sprayed some glimmer mist over it. I wanted it to be subtle and glimmer mist is just that. I applied gesso on the the chandelier and dress form. Once dry I painted it using white paint then applies some iridescent medium over it, to add some shimmer. To create the skirt, I used a template from Taras Craft Studio. Click here to go to the blog post. It was a little large, so I trimmed it along the edge. I used some organza ribbon to create the soft over skirt. It was the perfect width.
