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 dress...lol 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 that...me) 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
hugs

Hi Chris
This is gorgeous, love the little roses round the bottom and the dangly bits.

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 :-)
