Gina's Designs DT Project: Dressform Cork Board

 Happy Tuesday!I am pleased to bring you my latest DT project for Gina's Designs. I have made a cork board  to keep track of my DT project due dates. I used the box portion of the Daily Box SEW since I used a lot of the elements that came with it on my Couture Shop project. After a good coat of gesso, I actually papered the inside and outside sides with Couture Shop by Graphic 45. 
 And then I changed directions! I covered the sides with lace and trim from my stash. On the inside, I covered it with a piece of cork board and then some rosette lace I got from Suhafuha on Zibbet.

I used gesso on all the dressform pieces and colored them with marker before applying clear embossing powder to the miniature ones. I attached five of the mini dressforms to thumb tacks I had.
 The larger dressform (which is designed to be free standing) is covered with a piece of paper from the Couture Shop. 
 On the larger dressform, I attached a mini cork board that I made from one of the frames that was in a "thank you for order" from Gina. I attached one of the miniature dressforms to it. 
 The bottom of the large dressform is a flower cluster I made. Not only is it darling, but the cluster also hides the slit where the cross piece slides in to make the dressform stand on its own.
