Altered Ballerina Dressform

I finally get the chance to sit down and share with you the projects I created for the Lindy's Stamp Gang Booth for CHA 2012. I had a lot of fun making all that I made, but I'm sure I'll make several posts about all them, because there is just too much info to share.
First off, the booth had a Springtime in Paris Theme, which all the the designers tried to follow for all the projects made. It is a super fun theme, and with all the variety of Lindy's Stamp Gang products available, even more fun to create. I wanted to provide something to display some of my pieces, and when I saw this dress-form I knew I had to use it. It would display all the themed tags I would make for the booth. This is what it looked like when I purchased it.
For some reason I did not what to keep it black. Black just does not seem very "springy" to me lol. I decided I would paint the whole thing ivory, and lighten things up a bit.
After that, I knew I had to dress it and brighten it up, so I took some of my favorite Making Memories Rosette Trim and gave it some fine garments lol. I also used some gorgeous trim for the straps and waist accent, which I received from my friend Dale. She got it while on a trip to Norway, and I knew I wanted to use it for a special project such as this. I added some coordinating trim to the skirt and waist, and this is what it ended up looking like.
Of course, it was not finished yet. I had to glimmer it up with some gorgeous Scrintilating Silver Glitz Spritz from Lindy's Stamp Gang, and that just made it look just right. Take a close look at the shimmer on this baby.
The picture definitely does not do it justice, but if you were able to stop by the booth and see it at CHA, you know that it sparkled like no other. It was perfect to display the tags I created for the booth, and this is how they hung from it:

I will post all the tags I made with details of all I used on the next posts, as well as the other projects that I also made for the booth. You don't want to miss them. Stay tuned!
