Thrifty Thursday - Butterfly Mannequin

Hi Everyone
Sue Here


This week we have asked to do something different with Spellbinders and I can think of nothing more satisfying than altering a mannequin.


I purchased this from next in the sale last year for £3.  I firstly painted the stand with black gesso and the torso in white gesso.  I then used PVA glue and attached Tim Holtz Tissue paper to the torso.  I then painted it in pink acrylic paint and whilst wet flicked mica powder in pink purple and brown on the paint and rubbed it in.

I then die cut 2 x Heartfelt Creation Decorative Lace Border from Tim Holtz backing papers and cut this in half, the bottom bit I put around the edge of the torso and the upper bit I put around the waist and neck area of the mannequin.

I then used the pink Tim Holtz backing papers and die cut scrolls from spellbinder frosty forms, die d lites fantastic fourish 1, and jewel flowers and flourishes, adding dots of glue over the flourishes and adding pink glitter.

I then die cut a butterfly from the spellbinders wonderful wings and added versamark with WOW Pink Glitz embossing powder.  I punched out some small flowers and added them to the torso, ribbon around the waist and used a diamante brad both front and back.




A gorgeous addition to a girls bedroom
