Hello Unis! Jax here, with the September Your Passion, Your Art BAP. This month I'm doing Build-A-Project using the off-the-page project included in the September KOM, a paper mache dress form. This is a long, photo-heavy post, so pull up a chair and a glass of your favourite something, and let's get to it!
Here is a closeup of the upper part of the bodice - I cut a circle for the top of the neck and a band to wrap around it. I love the detail the overlapping pieces created on the bodice. (I adhered the front and back panels first, followed by the sides, followed by the corners to achieve this effect).
Once the dress form was completely covered in pattern paper, I applied a thick layer of clear crackle medium and let it air dry.
As the crackle medium dries it shrinks, which will pull the paper apart a bit; this just contributes to the weathered look. Note - if I were going to stop here I would apply a coat of something to hold the crackles in place, otherwise they might flake off over time. However, since I was planning on glazing it I didn't worry - the glaze will hold everything together.
See the gorgeous crackles?
To provide an age-darkened look, I first sprayed the base with Shimmerz in Treasured Hymn and Truffle, then painted over it with Creative Medium combined with Honey Amber Primary Elements for a multi-faceted brown finish.
For the bodice, I wanted to create a rich green veneer, which I achieved by spritzing with Shimmerz Olive Branch and then combining Creative Medium with Primary Elements in Mustard Green and Autumn Butternut. In the photo below you can see the difference between the painted portion on the right and the unpainted portion on the left.
Because Primary Elements mixed with the Creative Medium is semi-translucent, you can still see the details of the patterned paper underneath.
And some Petaloo flowers and Flying Unicorn Adornments at the base.
I made the hat using a template that can be found on the Flying Unicorns site -posted by Tammy Henderson.
I added a metal Adornment from the Flying Unicorns to the bust-line. The lace has been inked with Prima Color Blooms Tea Stain to give an aged antique appearance.
The large purple flowers are some older Prima flowers. The metal frame came from the Sept Kit and is a metal adornment from the Flying Unicorns exclusive stock.
The hat is Maja Design Fika -Kladdkaka with the hat band being from the paper called - En kopp.
The brown flowers are actually not quite as brown but have been enhanced a wee bit. They are Prima Parchment flowers and I enhanced with Color Bloom Mists in Worn Leather. The mist was perfect and created the richness I was hoping to capture.
Thanks for stopping by.

Gabi always has a way to take our kits to the next level. Her creativity truly knows no bounds and it shows in these beatuiful projects! Another thing about Gabi that we just adore, other than she is a total sweetheart, is she shares her talent and knowledge with us all! I for one love watching her tutorials and creative ways she puts her layouts together.
Just check this beauties out! Just amazing details and design!
The OTP this month is a Dress Form and I love the way she designed it..so shabby chic!
She made a beautiful card using the Small Art Big Passion kit. I LOVE this! It is just gorgeous!
Using items from the Mixed Art kit, she made this canvas and even altered the paint pallette that came with the brushes..how amazingly gorgeous!
