Take a break. Take a moment. Immerse yourself in this beautiful world of poetry created by Agnieszka Anna.
Hello. Today, I'd like to present a dress that was inspired by poetry of a Polish poet, Rafał Wojaczek.
Technically, this piece was very easy to make.
My base for the dress is a paper mache shape formed on a Barbie doll. I used pieces of a newspaper soaked in glue to create the skirt.
After the glue dried, I used gesso applied with a soft brush to fix the whole dress. When it dried and the dress was hard, I painted it with acrylic paints. Finally, I added some frills and some glimmer with this mist.
For the background, I applied a thick layer of gesso on a piece of cardboard and stamped this circle shape into the gesso.
When dry, I painted the background with the same paints I used for the dress.
The little houses I placed on my dress I created out of thick cardboard. I glued pieces of newspaper onto them, then added some touches of white acrylic paint and distressed them with distress inks.
Finally, I glued the dress onto the background with the magic glue.
I hope you like my dress. Creating it was really that complicated, maybe you will give it a try and create your own?
