"Queen Bee" and her Sister "The Dreamer"

When I first spotted this Dress Form Art Doll in the RCG shop,I'll admit,something flashed across my noggin. It was a table runner I made about two years ago for Trunk Show that I used once. So why did it come to mind you ask? Well,I just knew that the table runner would make a perfect skirt for this Dress form...and because I had enough material....I would simply have to make two! 

First I added card stock to the top using a glue stick and distressed the edges with some ink.

Next I used some of Deco Arts one step crackle and filled in the cracks with Deco Arts Antique Cream.

then I added some ivory splatter marks,added some rub-ons and covered it in a layer of sealer.

Next I mixed up a batch of Amazing Clear Cast and covered the arms and torso in the resin.

I then cut a piece of the runner,just enough to fit around the bottom portion of the doll and hand stitched it into place.

I next mounted a face paper cut out onto stencil board.I covered it in a couple of layers of sealer and then added a layer of resin. 

I finished it off by adding spools into the shadowbox,trimming it with Dresden, hanging findings on the skirt and small details to the lower arms.

I love the way these two sisters came out and hope you are inspired to give them a try!
Happy creating friends!
