This week we have asked to do something different with Spellbinders and I can think of nothing more satisfying than altering a mannequin.
I 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.
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 used the pink Tim Holtz backing papers and die cut scrolls from spellbinder frosty forms die d lites fantastic flourish 1, and jewel flowers and flourishes, adding dots of glue over the flourishes and adding pink glitter.
