Deep Sea Diver Gear

Deep Sea Diver Gear
With Crafting On A Budget (Mai Larsen)
I Got the Stamperia Sea world paper from Crafting on a budget
I started by Cutting all my paper elements and gluing them down to Stamperia stone Paper. Stone paper is made of stone and can not be ripped or torn. But it cuts beautifully with scissors. Stone paper is perfect for gluing paper to for sturdy layers in mixed media. then giving them a protected layer of decoupage glue. 

Here I cover the whole gear with Stamperia Sea world rice paper. and decoupage glue will work just fine.
This Mould is also from the Sea world Collection, its nice and thin! I took prima modeling material and pressed little sections, while still soft I glued them down to my gear. I also used modeling paste through a stameria stencil to add more texture to the backround
Close up of that gorgeous stencil!
You can see here I start layered my paper elements along with some finnabair gears made from her mould.
 I added the seaworld wood shaped UNDERWATER No 297! love the look of that! When everything is all dry I added Aniquing cream then wiped it off gently to give a vintage look.
 I'll link everything I used below  Thanks for looking!!

Thanks so much for taking a peak at my project!

Vintage bride Dress Form!

Hello overyone! Today I'm showing you a little walk through of this little dress form I transformed I got 2 links for you that will work to create something similar!


I start off painting the whole base white with gesso, I cut off the feet and glued them through my resin gears

Next I'm taking this fantastic vintage paper and decoupaging it to stone paper. this will be cut down to make the dress! 

As you see, I have added paper to the wings and painted them green.
Along with painting the dress form green as well!

now to the fun stuff!!! I took Decoart Antiquing cream covered everything. let that dry a minute and wipe the access off with a babywipe.

Now to just assemble!
