Steampunk Classic Form/Corset

Steampunk Classic Form/Corset
This past November I attended the retreat at the Barron River Resort in Glasgow, KY.  I was a staff member teaching classes and helping with all the events.  What fun it was, I must say.  We had 125 ladies and 1 man in attendance.  You ask, what man would come to a retreat.  Well, it was Ken of Unibind products.  Fun, fun, and more fun.  He fit right in and added a certain degree of hysterical-arity.  Interesting word just like Ken.  A hoot and so much fun.  If anyone has a crop and wants info about the Unibind products, you have to invite Ken.  He is interesting and he gives away great gifts and teaches the use of the product.  We were so glad he was able to stay for 3 days.  We will be having another retreat in March and I hope he attends then also.
Now to the photographs above.  During the retreat I started a project I had been dreaming of for months and finally put it together.  I went to lots of tag and yard sales all summer long collecting the old jewelery and other embellishments used.  Quite eclectic.  It took me about 12 hours total to make the form/corset and I just love how it turned out.  I used Graphic45 papers, PK Glitz double sided adhesive sheets, G&G metal form and lots of ingenuity.  The dark looking lace at the waist is made of metal.  There are trims, gears, wings, clock fixtures, keys and hand designed flowers and paper curly-q's. 
I hope you enjoy looking at the photos.  Thanks for checking in and have wonderful holidays.
