If you know me, you know my obsession with dress forms. It was so nice to etch out some time to not only create one but to play with Graphic 45 and Canvas Corp in my almost finished craft room.
It is quite a process and was made over a few days here and there. Check out how it progressed and a little burlap trick to boot.
I start with what I call an old school technique because I have been doing it for so many years. You cut strips in the paper to almost the edge, then twist the paper around the end of paint brush to create the curls.
I had started this dress form with other paper but found the Botanical Tea collection at my local craft store and couldnt resist!
To create the burlap band, I used a piece cut from Canvas Corp Brands Burlap Sheet in Pink. I cut a 1.5 inch strip, used Beacon Adhesives Fabri Tac and ran adhesive down the center and folded the ends in. I held it down until it stuck on its own.
