Art dress *

After seeing this tutorial by Angela Holt on You Tube I just has to give it a try and what a trial it was lol.  I got into such a mess with the glue, black velvet and lace with underlay of plum netting and I didn't really get the effect I wanted but I was relatively happy in the end - I used glossy accents over her torso etc and affixed diamante in her hair, ear, neck and velvet bodice (I couldn't capture the velvet all that well either lol).

Then I got to work on the canvas background and painted randomly using grey, white and black.  I stenciled modelling paste randomly and sprayed using dylusions and color washes then a little inka gold.  I glued torn netting round the edges of canvas and 3 butterflies from a napkin to finish it off ( one hiding at the bottom under skirt)

Now for overload - sorry!





Hugz always
