Hello again! I hope I don't overwhelm everyone with all my challenge posts this week.It's the beginning of the month so I have 2 monthly challenges to add.
It's dress up time at Alice and Camilla.
Here is my paper dress for September. And guess what?
I'm all caught up now so I just have 1 to show you.
It's time for a Harvest Ball under an autumn full moon.
Here is a dress to party the night away in.
For my autumn gown I played with my paper coffee filters again.
This time I soaked them in a bowl of dark Yorkshire tea and ended up with this
wonderful aged patina that reminded me of dried crispy leaves.
I discovered if I crinkled the edges the skirt fanned out in playful layers.
I used silk leaves and tea dyed lace for the bodice.
The skirt has a tule under layer and there is also a tule
bow at the back.
September goes into the wardrobe to join all the others.
As you can guess I'm already thinking about October's dress.
Come back and see what I have in store for Halloween!
Visit Alice and Camilla to see more pretty paper dresses.
Today I'm grateful for...
Teachers. I met my son's teachers today at his school's orientation.
Teachers do so much and are never appreciated enough.
If you're a teacher I say THANK YOU, YOU ARE AMAZING!
