Haute Couture!

Hello everyone!
Anchal Sapra this side first of all I would like to welcome all my new team mates who joined the CC family! I am so happy about my new team! Welcome to the Crafters Corner family Ladies! <3
Gosh I am so excited to share my brand new project with all of you!
This will be a picture heavy post with lots of explaining about the products used so please grab your favourite drink sit back and relax!

First let me share the pictures.

How's it?

As a kid I always wanted to become a Fashion Designer but well Destiny had a different plan for me and I ended up Crafting - creating pretty projects to preserve memories! So if I ever had my own studio this project is how it would have been like hehe! 
I picked this glass dome locally and just loved the way it turned out! 

Our store has recently come up with these super amazing Mannequins and I really wanted to alter one. 
I created the entire dress using the Lovely paper pad called Santoro Mirabelle Premium Backing Design Paper Pad from the store. It has Gorgeous Vintage style prints. This paper pad goes very well with the Santoro Mirabelle Decoupage papers. Do visit our store to see the amazing collection. 

I started by tearing off small pcs of the pink print from the paper and sticking it to the Mannequin using Mod Podge I diluted the mod podge a bit cause I wanted the paper to take the proper shape of the Mannequin .

Next to make the skirt I decided to use 2 prints I made 5*15 inch , 7*15 inch strips from two different prints and scored them half inch apart. I folded them and made slits at the top and layered them on one top of the other to make the skirt. 
I sprayed the top with some water so that the paper was soft for me to flatten it as I wish. I covered the flatter part with a strip I punched using my Martha Stewart Doily punch! This is my favourite punch I just cannot get enough of it!

Now comes the fun part I wanted to add some net or lace to the dress but wasnt sure what to do, 
So I took some Molding paste added this Lindy's stamp Gang Magical to it and gave it a soft pink colour that matched my dress. Next I took the Art Is stencil by Crafters Workshop this too is one of my Favourite product I'm addicted to it , It looks good EVERYWHERE! So I stenciled over some net and dried it using my Ranger heat tool. When you do this step make sure you are using a craft sheet and that you lift the net and wipe off the extra molding paste as you don't want to spoil your work surface and I didnt want my net to get too bulky! I wanted an opaque look to it! 

This net was next added to the dress and I've finished it with some lace from my stash. 
I've embellished my dress using these amazing flowers that match the paper pad - Santoro Mirabelle Paper Blossoms added some pearls to all of them. The Gorgeous pearl swirl that you see on the dress is by Prima Markting. Our store has recently come up with these Amazing Prima Marketing kits which are just perfect for scrapbooking , cardmaking as they have matching a 6*6 paper pad, embellsihments, rhinestones, pearls and what not. The swirl I've used here is from one of these amazing kits. 

Do you see this Pretty sewing machine? Its a new arrival at our store. Isn't it adorable? I've added some embellishments to it to make it look more fun! The measuring tape ribbon is from Kaisercraft its a set of 3 printed ribbons I've used all three of them for my project. One's on the sewing machine, ones's on the cute Maya Road spool next to the frame and one is on the outside of the Glass Dome. These ribbons are of canvas style fabric and they are of very good quality perfect for shadow boxes and 3d projects! Dont forget to check them out. 

I created a corner table using the Miniature lamp from the store. I've added some Chalkboard Paint to the tiny picture frame and written with a white gel pen on it. I just lovee chalboard paint is so versatile and so much can be done with it. Our store is coming up a wide variety of Chalboard paints in various colours! So stay tuned!

I've also used the cute wooden miniature chair from the store. Isn't it cute? Our store has a variety of these miniature Mdf furniture. These are just adorable and so good if you are making a doll house or a house scene inspired project. I've also made this cute table using an old cardboard box. I've covered it using some satin ribbon and pattern paper with red tacky tape. I hope you all have heard about this amazing tacky tape our store stocks? Well let me tell you a bit about it. Its a thin transparent double sided tape used for sticking papers, ribbons,laces ,embellishments and what not. Its of amazing quality and we have a variety of sizes available. Since you all know I made a lot of 3d projects and scrapbooks so I only use red tacky tape as it holds the paper extremely well and no paper would be sticking out or coming off even after years! 

Next I added a Chandelier to my project as a finishing touch. I've cut this using my electronic die cutting machine- Silhouette Cameo. It was 3d file and i decorated it with some liquid pearls. Silhouette Cameo is an amazing machine and the possiblities with it are endless. We can cut in different fonts. make 3d pojects, cut vinyl, fabric and what not! Our store is now the Official Distributor of it! How awesome is that? So if you have any problem with the machine our store is ready to help :) 

I've decorated the Glass dome using some lace from my stash along with the paper flowers by Santoro Mirabelle .

Hope you all liked my project! Please do leave some love! 
If any questions please feel free to ask. 

Lots of Love!
