Not so shabby but Oh so Chic

I created this new little altered art piece from a plain, un altered papier maiche dress form I purchased at Michaels a while back.  I knew I wanted to do something with it, but I could never come up with a good idea.  I started playing around with paint and paper and lace, and TA-DA!  here it is!  I think it turned out so cute in that French blue color, with the handmade little skirt and vintage buttons.  Enjoy! 

How cute would this be displayed on a shelf?  Love the way it came out!  Leave your comments :)


  1. you did a great job. I love it when things come together like that.

  2. this is so cute! i really love it. you have such a great way of piecing everything together!

    i'm sad that i had to miss the last two classes (because of my husbands work schedule). :(
    stay in touch!

  3. c'est tres risque, non? C'est une bonne idee!

  4. Katie, this is just so adorable!! I was thinking of something that was actually intimidating me and now looking at yours.....I wonder why some things look complicated when they can be so simple! Thanks for the inspiration....I'm gonna have to really work on mine this weekend! Awesome job girly!! Jules:)
