Mannequin ... well kind of! ... D

Happy Sunday everyone

I hope everyone has enjoyed their weekend.  I know I have even though I have slept most of it away lol.  Today I am showing you a something or other.  Not quite sure what to call it lol.

I started off by making the spool base using a toilet roll innard and 2 circle of chipboard.  I mod podged tissue paper all over. For the next layer I used modelling paste mixed with grey paint.  I dry brushed black over the top and rubbed a little gilding wax over the texture.

I had some chipboard diecuts of mannequins in my stash.  I tissue papered the small ones and wiped wax over the top.  

The three larger ones I covered in modelling paste and dry brushed those too.  I stuck them together in the form of a triangle.  I dabbed red paint over a black leaf vine ribbon also from my stash and draped it over the forms and base.  

I attached a small piece of purple mesh as a stiffener beneath the black spider web netting to form the skirt and the veil, attached to the red rose which symbolizes the head on the forms.  I covered the small dress forms with wire coils made from the flower stems, painted red.

   I suppose I have created a dark version of a wedding dress. 

Anyway that is about it for today. 

I do hope you like my latest creation and if you don't thats okay too.  I am unsure myself lol.

Hugz to all
