Extravaganza Artwork - Dress Shop (my favourite)

This was my favourite piece of artwork of all of them (and it took me the longest time to make as well...) There were SO many people who commented on this and the uniqueness of it. The majority of it was cut from just one key on the new Cricut Artiste Cartridge - the "Q" key. That's what corporate means by "project keys" on this cartridge. Many other products were used and they are all listed below the project. 

It had to be designed in a way that I could transport it to and from Convention without it being damaged, so it was made using foam board and it is foldable with the exception of the roof piece. The bamboo skewers (black rods) had to go into my checked baggage due to their sharp edges. Behind the long dress, there is another dress form attached to the wall, but that is not visible in these photos... Unfortunately, from the angle which this was photographed, you can just barely see part of the assembly under the roof (that was raised at Convention so it was not noticeable - I rephotographed this at home before I posted these pictures).




Enjoy, 
Alyson
