Altered Eclectics October Challenge - Anything Goes

As a two time survivor of breast cancer, I wanted my Altered Eclectics October DT altered creation to be Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness!

I altered a paper mache box and embellished it with an altered paper mache dress form.

I found the dress form in the dollar bin at Michaels and the box at Hobby Lobby.  For the dress form, I covered it with Tim Holtz tissue tape, then used Victorian distress ink to paint it, then covered it with a coating of Modpodge.  I created a "skirt" from pink lace, and a handmade pink lace flower embellish the form.  I covered the box base with a strip of sticky back gems, the edge of the lid was covered with adhesive lace and topped with a cut square of  awareness designer paper adorned with punched butterflies.

You can find the Altered Eclectics Challenge here.  It's anything goes as long as it's altered!  We hope you'll play along.

I'm entering this into the use pink challenge over at Anything But A Card.
