MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Basic grey wedding dress - Dress it up challenge 2010

Well Valentines day is well and truly behind us but I must be in romance mode because for the March Dress it up challenge I made me a wedding Well that's a must have for most girls isn't it so my dolly has to have one (well when I make my dolly that is).
This gorgeous Basic Grey paper was just screaming at me to be used and I guess a traditional wedding dress would be white or ivory...but hey what about the more mature lady... someone has to be on our side.

The gorgeous sticky
bling was a gift from DG and was meant for hand decoration (bit old for but it looks fab on my dress I think.

I added some silky fabric rosebuds to the bottom and as I love paper sculpture I thought it would look good along the edge as added decoration too.
Hope you like
Chris xx

A beautiful dress Chris!
It's kind of 1920's at the bottom.
Getting married in plain white is boring anyway, I much prefer your design for a wedding dress :-)
