here is what has been keeping me busy
STEAMPUNK DRESS FORM PART 1
So i created a fabric dress on a wire dress form (I will reveal tomorrow) and the finishing touch is the top hat.
started with a top hat brought from the dollar store (not a dollar) i covered with fabric
then added accents with chipboard gears, bicycle, clock and rails. Also accents of flowers, metal gears and facuets, and screw brads. Used Graphic 45 curosity paper line for color punch.
GOGGLES UP CLOSE
Does the shape of the goggles look familiar??? i was really stumped on how to make the goggles then as i was drinking my morning tim hortons tea it hit me- the bottom of the coffee cup was exactly what i was looking for. So i cleaned out the coffee and cut off the bottom of the cup, covered the sides with paper, and colored the bottom with jiffy marker. To get the metal edge i inked top and bottom with versa mark and used embossing enamel-silver by stampendous (this one of my favorite products i discovered last april and now use on everything. I use the aged embossing enamel they are super thick and have multiple colors in then so when they dry there are hints of other colors giving them more depth. They also don't dry as shinny as an embossing powder but more flat- LOVE) Finished with karen foster screw brads around outer edge. Once i get to the shop tomorrow i will add glossy accents to black bottom to make it look more like tinted glass lens.
