Agatha's make-over...

If you guys know me, I'm obsessed with dress/body forms. I don't know why, but I am. I have rubberstamps, diecuts, jewelry holders, prints and I have a decal on a wall in my craft room. On my pinterest boards, I pinned quite a few under: Obsessed. A couple of years ago, I decoupaged a mache, named her Emerald ( my birthstone). A friend of mine who sews beautiful baby blankets bought it from me and I was happy to find her a new home!
So, this time, I had my friend, Kim of Flea Market Divas,  bought one for me at a flea market. I named her Agatha. She's vintage
(I think she's from circa 1930's) she's beautiful, slim and stands about a little over 3 feet. And according to Kim, as told to her by the seller, she was owned by a mortisian. Okay, that's all I know about her "previous life".
So I kinda want to bring her in the 21st century so I thought I'd give her a make over. And voila! I 
L O V E D how she turned out!


Deciding what colors I would be using was just one challenge. So, once I decided to do black and white, it was easy! I have beautiful black and white scrapbook pages, and I went to town with mod podge!
