Here is the finished product. I started with this canvas which was one of my do overs. I covered it with papers and then sealed it with soft gel gloss medium.
I thought it was a little bright so I toned it down with a couple of coats of thinned Van Dyke brown. Then I hot glued and sewed the dress to the canvas. I popped it into a spare frame after I took the picture and we are good to go.
I think I could have done a better of centering it top to bottom but it is too late now.
