I have been playing with small corsets/torsos made from paper mache using a Barbie doll as a mould and I though that this was the perfect challenge to use one of these.
Here is the finished project.
I covered the canvas back with bookpaper, then I glued tissue paper over that. I then glued on crochet and paper doilies, cheesecloth and lace. I used chipboard pieces and flowers from Imagine If and I diecut leaves and flowers from wallpaper and old maps and glued it all together. Before adding the flowers I sprayed the canvas using homemade paint sprays in a combination of green, blue, cranberry and violet. I also used a gold shimmer spray over some of the pieces.
I had a lot of fun making this canvas and I hope it inspires you to enter the challenge over at
Southern Girls Challenge. You can check out the other Design Team Projects and remember anything goes. I am really looking forward to seeing your creations so give it a go.
