Hi all I am Elaine (Ellapu) This blog used to be called Handcrafted by Ellapu but wanted to rebrand to KraftiKards Kreations. I have given up mixed media and am now into making cards. I had not posted since 2019 when I ran 2 challenge blogs, Eclectic Ellapu and Altered Eclectics. There were so many fantastic designers who tirelessly created such beautiful art and I would like to thank them if they ever come across my blog again. I do hope you enjoy my art
Yes thats right it is time for a now challenge over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit. I have put together a dress form just using old dictionary paper, pva glue, wadding, ATB, a little lace trim and a lot of patience lol
I made the body form by glueing dictionary paper over top the clingfilm on the torso of a child's doll. Once dried I cut it up the back and removed the doll for another day lol. I filled the form with wadding to help keep its shape. I covered the ATB with the same paper and married the 2 items together.
I then spent time folding and rolling paper and randomly stuck to the form. I used lace to give a little interest. I actually quite like it and pleased with my first attempt with the doll thing lol.
That's it for now and I hope you enjoyed your visit. Why not head on over to our new challenge, always Anything Goes as long as it is altered/mixed media art. We would love to see you there.
