Fly free-Altered art

Hello everyone,
 i am so happy to be Guest designing today over at "Scrapki-wyzwaniowo",one of my favorite mixed media challenge blog.The theme for this months challenge is "Altered art ",and i made a altered mannequin in steam-punk style.

 I was hoarding this dress form for quiet a long time,its quiet flat,so adding some nice frilly dress to it doesnt workout. Suddenly the steam-punk style idea clicked and it really worked well for this shape.To give more dimension i added tim holtz wings die cuts  to it,and for the flower arrangement in the center i added lots of light paste n  cheese cloth to elevate it n give some depth.Adding a base was  not a part of my initial idea, but due to heaviness on top,it started falling down,so added a circle base with chipboard and decorated it to match the dress form.

I added lots of flowers,metal embellishments and gears,few things releated to dress form for the steam-punk look.

For the coloring part i  used "Colourarte" primary element-Teal zicron mixed with clear glaze.For highlights used "Deco art" metallic luster silver.Teal with silver is one of my most fav combo  n it never fails you,love how it turned out.

You still have 10 more days to take part in the challenge n win some amazing goodies,dont forget to visit  the Scrapki-wyzwaniowo blog for amazing mixed media inspiration. Happy crafting,
