Altering The Baby Form

When I saw this baby form at Barr Display I couldn't wait to get my hands on her!


Here's the baby waiting in the wings to get "Prettied up".  This was  on my post about altering the child form HERE 



I applied the flowers and "Baby" with Transfer Artist Paper, which I explained HERE



Then I made her a little tutu and head band


And of course, she needed little ribbon ballet slippers 


This would be so cute in a babies room and adorable as a table center piece at a baby shower!!!!  I think she stands about 2ft high.  I love her!


  She is available at Barr Display 800-222-2702 and the Fancy Flea for $95 (Without the tutu and headband)

Of course I couldn't stop with just a baby and child form.   I had to do a full size dress form with flowers too.  So, now Barr Display offers the full........Rose Family....Baby, Child, and adult dress forms


Here's the "Rose Family" in Barr Display's Orlando show room 


Along with my other altered dress forms and a special form I made for them with the "Barr Display" logo 


I have to say....It is really a kick to be making these forms for Barr Display (You can read about our business relationship HERE)  They are just the Nicest people and I think they are having as much fun with this new endeavor as I am!

We will be bringing all of these altered forms along with unaltered forms and tons of other display pieces to the Fancy Flea November 2, 2013


I hope you will stop buy and say hi to the "Rose Family"


And enter the drawing for free Barr Display products in our booth...... I will tell you more about that soon.

I'm So Excited, I just can't hide it....Anyone remember that song?
  
Happy Creating!!

That trio would be perfect welcoming people to a children's store wouldn't it? Pretty affordable too...
Prepare for tantrums of little shoppers wanting to take them all home.
Full of whimsy. LOVE it!
You have a wonderful vision. Parafrasing the Michelangelo Angel quote: "I saw the whimsy in the form and I beautified it until I set it free" - that's you Carol!!!
Well done. Wonderfully created.
Thank you for sharing,

Your newest addition to the Rose family is precious and the family would not be complete without her. I bet these are big hits at your upcoming event. Another great project.

To have your work on display for a huge company like Barr is such a great thing! I've already ordered the first dress form you remade with the music, and now my list has these pretties to purchase in the future. LOVE THEM!!

The Rose Family is darling!!!

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

The family looks so much better after you worked your magic. So pretty!

Debbie said...

I would love that in a baby nursery or even a little toddler's room. I can picture it with all white painted schtuff and vintage remakes around.

I just need the need to decorate a baby nursery. Not in that big of a hurry since I don't have son in laws yet.

Kelley said...

Stop and enjoy the Roses! Well done, beautiful lady!
