Manequin jewellery stand

My first attempt at decopage or now known as decopatch.  This is still work in progress but wanted to share.  The manequin has been covered in Gesso then torn pages from a book decopatched onto it.

I then glued through a stencil on the bottom and added gilding flakes.

I added a tassel trim to the bottom and trim round the waist and neckline with paper roses to add as another embellishment to the waist.  I glued old spools to the arms and an old doorknob to the top. 

I now think I should've added a thin coat of gesso over the bookpages but too late now.  I have to paint the doorknob too.
