I am super excited to have been asked to teach an altered project at Charity Wings' Seaside Soiree in December!! This even is nearly sold out so if you want to join us, please sign up now!!!

A few months ago, Elena of Charity Wings and I were brainstorming about projects I could teach at the event. Inspired partially by my altered dress at CHA and also by all the dictionary paper I have been working on, we came up with the idea of an altered dress form. Darice sponsored us with these amazing 3D dress forms and I added the spindles and wood base. A little Collage Pauge Decoupage by ilovetocreate.com, some Smooch Spritz by Clearsnap, and a little acrylic paint and BAM!

You'll have the option to leave your dress form shabby chic white…


… or you can alter it up with Smooch Spritz at the end of class. 

We'll learn to make paper cones and roses to alter this dress but these can also be used to make wreaths!! It is going to be tons of fun :)

See you there!
