Honeycomb paper and Dress Forms

Hello My Blog Friends

I feel quite overwhelmed that so many of you looked at my blog and some of you are now following me - no pressure then!  Thank you all so much.

Today I thought I would show the dress form covered in the honeycomb paper.  This was highlighted by Tim Holtz in his latest tags a month for 2012 idea.  He used the honeycomb paper for his valentine heart and then showed in his video how it could be used for other things - like the dress form. This is how it looks when it is made up.  Apologies for my very poor photography!

To make it I cut a dress form from Tim Holtz Alteration die range and then cut the honeycomb paper in the same way and cut off the top and bottom.  I then cut the paper in half right down the middle (you can make two from one piece of honeycomb.  I then glued one half to the form, pulled it across and glued the other side.  I used wet glue even though it can be a bit messy but as the paper is quite fine it does seem to work better.

Tim did his heart in red but I could only find yellow - I got it from Ebay and it was very cheap compared to the stuff that Tim uses.  I simply searched for honeycomb paper.  I am going to use up the yellow for cards with an easter egg pop up inside (at least that is my idea).


I really love these dress forms and here are a couple more.  In the first one I stamped with the new Hero Arts newspaper stamp in Versamark and embossed it in white.  I then covered the whole tag with my new Distress marker in Fired Brick and went around the edges in Black soot Distress ink.  The top and leg of both forms are stained in walnut distress stain.  The second dummy is covered in the newspaper stamp again, distressed with old paper distress marker, edged with frayed burlap distress ink and then covered with Distress crackle paint in clear rock candy.

Again, apologies for the poor photography, I cannot seem to get the light right.

Thanks again to everyone and if you look at this, I hope you enjoy it and leave me a comment.

Kind Regards, Anne x
