I have tried to go for the romantic Valentine look for February.
Before I started paper crafting last year I mainly sewed and knitted so I wondered if I could make a dress using only wool but not knitting with it nor sewing the yarn down with stitches.
When I showed Himself my efforts the silence was deafening -oh dear - but I like it.
How I made it.
I used 300g/m2 heavy water colour paper which I cut to this template shape.
I painted it with a pale pink metallic acrylic paint.
I don't have any sheets of double sided tape so I used the hi bond tape and stuck strips all around the edges and throughout the middle areas.
I wound two sorts of yarn randomly around the skirt working both yarns at the same time but laid them down separately.
For the bodice I used another yarn and wrapped it around each section in a neat line formation.
The space that was left in the middle I filled with jewels.
I used magic tape to hold the yarn threads on the back of the dress and made another painted pink template to stick over the back to make it look tidy.
I'm not sure with what to glue the back to the front that will work well.
Golden heavy gel medium or white PVA or something else?
Any suggestions would be most welcome thank you!
Happy creating everyone!
