THE DRESS OF MANY COLORS...

Hello all you wonderful creative visitors, I want to tell you how much you all inspire me, I was thinking that while I was creating my Cottage ATB, my heart has been singing out loud by all the creations I have been absorbing, I could not do what I do without you my Lovelies, THANK YOU...

I'm trying to play catch up before I leave, sharing what I have already made, this dress has been on the back burner for a while now. My DS Sandy has been telling me to use my paper towels I keep from when I'm pouring my inks. There was lots of white still there so I made some sprays and colored them all up, then they sat in a folder for a while.
I'm really glad I created it, I had a ball for 2 days making this, my hands suffered but it was sure worth it....
I used my dress templates I made, cover it with the paper towels, then folded 2 layers added light pink netting in between, the top layer I stamped it with swirls, and gathered it together to give it softer folds. I used 2 pieces of lace for the waist piece, I folded a paper towel to form the bodice. Added a piece of step ladder yarn to be able to hang it..

                               You can see the layers here..

The jewel on her bodice is a piece of necklace. Glued on some foam butterfly's to hide the wires, used stardust stickles on top.


                 The danglys  are from a earring I took apart...



Another close up....

Thanks Sandy for making me make it, I adore my dress of many colors. She is hanging in the bird cage...
After swimming I had company till 4ish today, then have been madly working on the ATB, hopefully I can get it finished.
I think I can, I think I can, I think I can, :O)......
I have my Dragons tag to post before Wed evening...
Thanks for visiting my crazy, busy, messy nest
((( BIG HUGS )))

 Head bowed,  wings together..
NAMASTE!!!

Oh, this is such a pretty, magical dress. It is the kind of dress I would dream of as a little girl listening to fairy tales. I love how the gorgeous colours seem to melt into one another. It is a dream of a fairy ball gown! I love all the imagination and enthusiasm you bring to your creations, Dianne and how you recycle. Those claws of yours must be magic to transform what others throw away into real magpie treasures! Thank you for those lovely flights of fancy. You are a creative wizard of a bird! xxxxx
