Opps now, I've done it again... green that is! Oh dear, it seems to be a reoccuring theme with me at the moment! perhaps it's my subconscious desire to see the start of Spring! Anyway, next month I promise to do better, really I do, NO green!! and I expect you gals to hold me to it!
I took the inspiration for my butterfly dress from Shelly's Blog, scroll down to her D-R-E-A-M garland, beautiful work! I painted onto a piece of dress pattern with acrylics, added some magazine scraps then decorated the hem with mini paper clips and painted bells.
I used two dried leaves for the wings which I folded in half and attached to the back of the dress. They are very fragile but they really do suggest wings to me.
And to finish I added some little metal flowers and a layer of clear texture gel to it give the dress a bit of depth, unfortunately it doesn't come out at all well in the photo but I'm pleased with the results.
The Linky for March is below, as I said earlier I'll now start to post the 'Dress Up' project on the first of each month. The linkys remain open and you can add to them in your own time, no pressure!! You can always find the 'Dress Up' post under the appropriate month in my Blog Archive, if you have time go back and look at January, there are still some wonderful creations coming in. Once again a very special thank you to all of you taking part, what an inspiration you are!
