Mannequin in Flight….

Hi Everyone

This week we have asked to do something different with Spellbinders and I can think of nothing more satisfying than altering a mannequin.

2012_1118nov120010.jpgI purchased this from next in the sale last year for £3.  I firstly painted the stand with black gesso and the torso in white gesso.  I then used PVA glue and attached Tim Holtz tissue paper to the torso.  I then painted it in pink acrylic paint and whilst wet flicked mica powder in pink purple and brown on the paint and rubbed it in.2012_1118nov120001.jpg

I then die cut 2 x Heartfelt Creations lace dies from Tim Holtz backing papers and cut this in half, the bottom bit I put around the edge of the torso and the upper bit I put around the waist and neck area of the mannequin.

I then die cut a butterfly from the spellbinders wonderful wings and added versamark with WOW Pink Glitz embossing powder.  I punched out some small flowers and added them to the torso, ribbon around the waist and used a diamante brad both front and back.
