Lisa - Oh Miss Nelly it's Springtime! A Layout & Dress forms to share.....

Hi Everyone. Lisa here, with some spring themed projects to share featuring Kaisercrafts beautiful Miss Nelly range. I liked this range instantly when I first saw it. Since playing with it,  I love it.

First up I have a layout of my daughter.


I have used Miss Nelly, 'Her style' as the background paper. I then used a large panel of the gloss sheet 'Her Scent' as the central piece. I made mats for the photos & a punched border (using the Martha Stewart doily lace punch) on a scrap piece of  purple paper.  After placing my photos I attached my floral arrangement from the sticker sheet. I wanted the flower stickers to sit up on the page so I gently rubbed talcum powder on the adhesive side to remove the stick. This allowed me to apply the sticker using dimensional tape. The alpha stickers are also from the sheet. I used Stickles 'frosted lace' to highlight areas of the flowers. The large pink flower is made using seam binding ribbon with a Sparklet in the centre..Too cute! Other items used string, die cuts, ink for edges, tags & pins.

Some close ups of the flowers & the hidden journal tag....

Next up today is the gorgeous Kaisercraft Dress forms that I got to dress up, this was lots of fun!


After painting my first dress form I used Miss Nelly 'Her Smile' to create a dress. Paper doilies for the dress trim, some seam binding ribbon, flowers, pearl strands & she was complete...until I decided she needed a little something extra...then came the parasol!

My second dress form is a little bit more vintage looking, this dress form is a more open slat style. I decided to keep it a little more stylish & simple. After painting the dress form, I stamped it using a resist technique, using versa mark watermark ink with a floral stamp, I then brushed with chalks to create a slight floral print where I had stamped. I then stamped a script stamp using brown ink on a piece of old dressmaking pattern. I used this old pattern for the dress which I stuck to the reverse of the form.  I used lace for the dress trim, flowers, seam binding, pearl strands and a piece of a rhinestone flourish to decorate.

Thanks for popping by, I hope I have given you some inspiration.
