I have been adding texture to this canvas piece for awhile now...every time I used some stucco and gesso with stencil mask I would use up the extra onto this canvas.
I created the dress form for another project that I haven't finished so the inspiration for the background colors came from the dress form.
Dress form I white washed with gesso, grunge it up with Distress Ink Brushed Corduroy with water.
Then started dripping Tattered Angels glimmer mist down the sides of the dress form
and letting it run down and around the body.
Stamped the dress form with a few 7gpysies stamps with archival black ink.
You can just keep adding layers of mist, ink!!
Oh don't forget to do glimmer splats...
I learned this techqinue from Marion Smith a few years back on grunging a dress form.
I knew I wanted to create some paper cone wing shape wreath..
Cut up an olde scrabble game pages into 2x2 squares
and began to roll into a cone shape, glued down
and tucked behind the dress form.
White washed the cones with a few little sprays of glimmer mist to match the background
and more splats!!
Oh adding a chain with dangles with a Petaloo Color Me Flower..
with glimmer mist and stamping
creates adorable touch.

Oh I love how the stamping shows up on the Petaloo flower!!!
Finial touch was adding a Art-i-Cake headpin to the top of
