Thank you so much Fiona for this great dress form. I had so much fun playing and alter it with the gorgeous  olde curiosity shoppe papers from Graphic45 :-)
This paper collection is my favorite now and i don`t think i have ever had so fun creating lol.
 Also made a mini album, some boxes and frames to go under the dressform stand
I have had some requests to make a tutorial on fuzzy cutting and there is a tutorial in the end of the video on how i do it.
Thank you all for your lovely comments and support. I really appreciate it :-)

Here is how it starded

First i glued the dress form on a long tube and then on a round chipboard. Painted it black an took crackle paint over. Finished it with white paint and distressed it with vintage photo.

opening for the clock on the dress form.
