Vintage Dress Form Canvas

Vintage with a pop of color is the theme of this 8″ x 10″ canvas board.  The vintage sewing pattern tissue adds whimsy and unique lines.

I started by spritzing the board with some DecoArt misters in Yellow Green, Primary Magenta and Primary Yellow.  Toned it down then by layering some sewing pattern tissue paper with matte medium and then tore off the excess tissue on the edges.

I wanted to add some texture and a pop of color, so I used modeling paste mixed with Media Line’s Cobalt Blue Hue.  The stencil is from The Crafter’s Workshop, but unfortunately I don’t have the name and it has been discontinued.

I love the Unity Stamp Chic Fabulous and the lovely vintage dress forms.  I stamped them on a couple of mono prints I had made from my Gelli Plate and then fussy cut the dresses out.  Stamped them again on the canvas and placed the dresses on top with matte medium.  This gives it a great dimensional look and feel.
For the background I used the Postcard stamp from Paper Wings Productions, and two numbers stamps from Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz line.

I love the new Staz On Midi ink pads form Imagine Crafts!  I used a sponge to apply them on the Harlequin and the Dylusions Letter stencils.  I used up the remaining modeling paste with the Mini Tile Texture stencil to scatter color throughout the canvas.

This image here is the reverse ghost image of the stencil used on the other corner.  Simply turn it over and press down to use up the color on top of the stencil.

I really love how this canvas board came out.  The sewing pattern tissue is one of my favorite ephemera’s to work with.
 
 
Thanks so much for visiting with me today!
