Hello fellow scrappers! This is a layout I created for the October challenge over at Inspire Me. The challenge is to dress a dress form using primarily Webster's Pages products. The photo is of my daughter when she was 2 years old. She looks like she's striking a pose, but in reality she was taking a break from crying. This is why her cheeks are all red and her eyes are glossy. I'm not exactly sure why she was crying, but I have a feeling it was because she wanted me to stop taking pictures LOL.
My inspiration came from these two dresses. I combined elements from both dresses to create my own.
Here are several close-ups of my dress form. I used several layers of paper from the Hollywood Vogue collection. I carefully folded and distressed each layer to create this design. I added a little lace for the skirt and embellished the dress with roses and pearls. The actual dress form chippie is made by Dusty Attic. I inked it with a mixture of vintage photo Distress Ink and Perfect Pearls.
The large purple flower and the flourish are made by Prima. Here you can see a close-up of the peacock that was cut from the paper. I added a little (or maybe a lot) of bling to its feathers.
I hand stitched around the entire layout (I really need to get a sewing machine) and added Stickles to the center of the gorgeous flowers on the patterned paper.
Around the edges of the paper I added rub-on flourishes to accentuate the page. The little gray roses were cut from the Prima flourish that I used.
