Happy New Year!
Hope you all had a wonderful holiday, it all seems such a long time ago now!
My contribution is this IB mannequin which started out with stamped tissue paper glued to it but I just couldn't get it to work for me. So I started rummaging in my stash for some inspiration and came across a packet of red feathers and I thought wow! I could make a skirt with them and the project just developed from there.
Out came the GeeSso Good black Gesso and I painted over the tissue. Mini cotton reels from IB were used for the 'arms' and a wooden door knob for the 'head'. I made the basque from red brocade, black sequins, eyelets and ribbon. The feather skirt and headdress were added though not without a bit of cussing - those feathers had a mind of their own!
Really pleased how this turned out, just goes to show that even if a project doesn't work first time it can still be rescued.
Have fun. take care x
