My Dress Challenge dress for October is all about autumn leaves. The bodice is made from papyrus. The leaves were inspired by this fantastic tutorial posted recently by Ink Stained Roni. What a fabulous blog she has!
I crumpled up brown paper and also white paper. I then painted the paper with acrylic paint, and also used distress ink. After the paint and ink dried, I spread Inksentials Glossy accents over the paper, sprinkled fine glitter over the paper, and then let it dry. Then, I used a die cutter to cut the paper into the leaf shapes. The waist embellishment is made from German scrap.
