Another Mixed Media Canvas: Clothe Yourself

Who likes vintage?   Of course I do, but with a modern twist!  Sewing manikins are still hot in the crafting world and so I thought I’d create a canvas for Basically Bare with one using one of the Basically Embellies Dress Forms.

I stared off by painting a 5″ x 7″ canvas using some of my favorite paints and stencils.

Then I pulled out three of the canvas leaves, and one of the small chipboard flowers from the Basically Embellies Bare Basics Blossoms & Leaves, and one of the bodices from the Dress Form set and painted them up.  While they were drying I covered the skirt of  the dress form with the chevron zig-zag paper.  I then adhered the dress form onto the canvas with Golden matte gel medium…it’s nice and thick so I can “slope” the edges around the chipboard since it dries clear, and then paint over it.

Then I just adhered the “leaves” onto the skirt with some more gel medium and added a few embellishments too.

I was careful to only adhere the tops of the leaves onto the canvas so that the bottoms could have some dimension.

And then I just finished it off by stamping on a scripture verse I paraphrased and adding some finishing touches.
