Don't Quit, Do It!

Hello Everyone!

Today I wanted to stop by and share an altered ceramic dress form that I found at the Salvation Army awhile back. 

The minute I picked it up  I knew that I wanted to so something focusing on Breast Cancer awareness. This topic has hit home for me too many times this last year.  As I am sure it has for so many of you. So with that in mind,  I wanted to share my love and support to all those dear to my heart and those that I don't know that have been touched by Breast Cancer.

Products Used: Prima/Finnabair Art Basics- 3d Matte Gel, Heavy Body Gel, Soft Gloss Gel, Heavy White Gesso. Prima/Finnabair  Art Alchemy- Sparks Butterfly Spells, Steampunk Copper, Rose Gold Wax, Boudoir Pink Impasto.  Prima/Finnabair- Micro Beads & Glass Beads. Prima Apricot Honey Pattern Paper & Chipboard. Prima Flowers- #65530 & 642846. Finnabair Molds- Stars & Moons, Cogs, Wings. Finnabair- Flutter Tissue Paper. Blue Fern Studio- Mauve Seedlings, Rose Gold Glitter. Lindy's Stamp Gang- Cotton Candy Pink, Bodacious Blush, Steampunk Sepia, Sandra Dee Sepia. Misc. Ribbon & Twine. Found Item Ceramic Dress Form.

I didn't create a video of this project because I knew I would never stay in focus.. but you here you can see how it started and started to come together. 

I started by sanding the dress form a bit and then applying a coat of  Heavy White Gesso. Next I added a base layer of Pink Boudoir. Then I wrapped it all up with tissue paper and gloss gel.

Then came everything else here are a few close ups..
