To prepare the papier mache I coated it with white gesso then when it had dried I used a Cosmic Shimmer Mister to spray it a delicate pearl pink. While it was drying I stamped several different lace stamps onto 3ply mansize tissues with versafine black ink, then I cut through the 3 layers of paper as close to image as possible then removed just the top layer as I needed them. I put some Slap it on just in the area I was going to put my image and placed the stamped image gently into place easing it with my brush, then I put another coat of Slap it on over it ... just kept repeating with each image until I had covered the whole dummy and gave it one final coat.
The dummy comes with a leg and base, I found an old wooden spool that had some ribbon on it so I slid that onto the stick for extra weight. Then the fun bit making the flowers ... I love making them with coredinations card and sanding them back to uncover the inside colour. I added some self adhesive pearl swirls to keep up the theme and there she was ... ready to face the world.
DH said it reminded him of a certain type of ladies boudoir ... when I asked how he would know about such ladies boudoirs he said he'd seen them on tv ...Lol :) well I just hope he doesn't catch a cold before I do my next shop because I have used up all the paper tissues :)
Well that's all for now ... I hope you enjoy this challenge as much as I have, looking forward to seeing your ideas
