Altered Art for the Robin's Nest Design Team.  Here is my Steam Punk Cage Dress Form that I made for my project this month over at the RN blog.  It was fun to make this:


First I painted with a metallic acrylic paint all the pieces on both sides.  Once the paint was dry. I added some Distressed ink with a sponge dauber.  I covered the mannequin in a paper dress made from some Robin's Nest paper.  I added more ink.  All the pieces were assembled and glued together. The metal and paper decorations, glitter, and thread were glued on.  A final spray of some Shimmering distress ink was sprayed to give the piece an aged effect.

Supplies:
Robin's Nest:  12 x 12 paper in Brick-Glitter-Cardstock-

                          Dew Drops
