While on a babysitting adventure the last couple days for my grandson and Mother (she suffers with Alzheimer's),... I was greeted with an old dress form that I'd given my granddaughter and she no longer wanted.
Hum mm...what to do, what to do???
This was a perfect time to alter the little darling.....
No before pics...sorry...didn't think I'd actually end up keeping it, thought for sure some one would snag it up in their hot little hands once it was redone.....to my surprise, I got to keep it.
I cut off the old fabric and do-dads, then began creating.
Love.... love... Tim Holtz scrapping paper...the rulers seems perfectly perfect for the new look. Tore a 12 x 12 piece into small bits and decoupaged away. Spray painted the white stand and finial black....let them all dry overnight and loved how she looked this morning.
Went thru my stash of chains, primped and fussed with her and the end result is making me so happy.
I mean.... *How many dress forms can a person have?*
I didn't know I had acquired so many over the years...it seems I have quite a COLLECTION, that I didn't even realized I had.
What's even scarier..... I know I have a few more in the garage boxed up that I'm sure I'll tear into real soon and redo them.
Then I'll wonder, "What the heck was I thinking....and, WHY did I re-open this dress form can of worms."
I passionately collect, then ask myself "WHY?"
Do you do that?
So, now they are nicely grouped (as they should be)in my *industrial* room, cuz I can't seem to move out of that room...... Let's hope I move on soon.
Have a creative adventure!
