Hello Crafty Friends!
My name is Dana and I'm excited to share my first blog project for Clear Scraps design team!
Today I have a fun home decor project that's all about fashion and Paris! I used the Clear Scraps Chipboard Dress Form
My theme was all about fashion and Paris! I used papers and stickers from Carta Bella "En Vogue" collection. First I painted the top wooden frame with some light pink acrylic paint. I added two coats. Let dry throughly. While you wait, you can start choosing your background papers for your tray. I measured and cut them out.
Choose one of the Clear Scraps Chipboard Dress forms you like. I painted the stand with some metallic gold acrylic paint. Let dry. Then I traced the top of the dress form onto a piece of patterned paper and cut it out. Glue onto your dressform with any craft glue you prefer. You can trim edges with a exacto knife. I then added some trim for a belt and adhered it to the middle of the dress form. Added a star gem in the middle to add some bling! On the bottom part of the dressform, I rubbed some Nuvo Mousse "Chai Latte". Then after adhering my background paper to my tray frame, I glued the dressform to the right side section of my frame. Took one of the sticker titles and matted it on some black cardstock. Used some popdots to adhere to my tray window. Fuzzy cut out some dresses from the papers. Inked the edges with Distress Ink and adhered with pop dots to add dimension. Took Stickles glitter and added to the fuzzy cut dress elements.
For my next window I cut one of the cut apart paper strips and adhered with craft glue. I fuzzy cut one of the little purses from the papers, inked the edges and used some pearl trim for the purse handle. I took 3 of the shoe stickers, sprinkled powder on the back of each sticker, so it wouldn't be so sticky. Then added a pop sit to the back of each shoe and aligned tgem on the bottom of my frame window. Added a pop dot to the back of the little purse.
For the Ooh La la section of my frame I picked another background paper and glued it inside the bottom left window. I took one of the cute journaling cards and added pop dots to the back and adhered on top of my base paper. I fuzzy cut out 5 if the little cakes, inked the edges and pop dots to the back to add dimension. The cake in the middle with the heart, I added a sticker on top! Then added some liquid pearls to one of the other cakes.
For my last window I picked out a Paris theme background paper. Glued this to the bottom right corner. Took another cute journaling card and attached to the base paper with pop dots. Took some Stickles glitter and added to some of the details on the journaling card. I also added a silver gem on the end of the necklace, that she's holding in her hand. Added some pop dots to my French word flags and adhered along the top edge. Took a Paris sticker and pop dots to the back. And adhered in the left upper corner.
After decorating all the sections of my tray, I glue each layer together with Beacon 3 in 1 glue. I chose not to add the acrylic sheet layer to my frame. But you can add it if you like. I will save the acrylic sheet for another project. Don't forget to remove the plastic film from both sides of the acrylic sheet before adhering!
Lastly I took some Tulle and tied in a bow and glued at the top left corner of the tray. I added a crystal gem in the middle of the bow to add some sparkle!
I hope you enjoyed this project today. And that I have inspired you to try making one for yourself.
