Vintage Dress Form

Good morning and happy Black Friday to you! Did any of you go shopping in the wee hours of the morning? Not me.......I definitely am not a crowds kind of gal! ; )


I have another Crafty Secret's card to share with you using the new Vintage Illustration's CD, which is available for purchase TODAY! If you love vintage papers and illustrations, this is a definite must have! I printed some paper and decided to print this darling dress right over it! I cut it out, inked the edges a bit and applied some Helmar crackle medium. (Such a cool product!) After it was all dry, I took my dark brown, inky sponge and filled in the cracks to make it more visible. I added a bit of felt, seam binding, a tiny spool, stick pins, and some machine sewing to finish it off!


This product works great on paper, chipboard, etc. You will definitely be seeing more using it!


And just a peek into my Thanksgiving......flowers that my Dad sent.....

My table before the bomb of food hit it! ; )

And my living room, with my new fireplace screen from Pier 1. Love the flicker of the candles...

Be sure to visit the Crafty Secret's website for Sandy's big announcement and a HUGE sale!


Today is the transformation from Thanksgiving decor to Christmas decor! Bring out the tree, lights, knick knacks etc!

I will be back tomorrow, so be sure to pop on by!

I saw this card posted on TwoPeas, but was having trouble posting a comment there. It's just adorable, Michele. I will need to get myself some of this crackle stuff and give it a try. Thanks for sharing another great idea.
Blessings,
Karen
