Hi lovely bloggers! After all the excitement of making Christmas stuff I am back with my dress for August and I already have an idea written down for September!!!! For this dress I was inspired by the sea......I love the sea & miss living on its doorstep :(
Once again I used the lovely GINI's template. The background was some card I had been spraying & painting that I didn't use for the previous project. I embossed some swirls in silver to represent the waves and as it needed 'something' I added a flower & ribbons. The teensy cawrie shells are very special to me so I really had to steel myself to use 3 of them. Years ago a terminally ill, elderly friend asked to see me a few days before she died. She very gently gave me a little jar of beautiful shells, telling me that her husband had picked them up off a beach in India while he was there in the war & brought them home for her. She treasured them as, although he survived the war he wasn't with her long. I have always been touched that she knew I would look after them & I have....see I am really a softie!
Anyway...if you would like to have a go at making a dress pop over to see MARGARET to find out more.
Thank you for popping by & please leave a comment if you have time, LOVE & HUGS XXX
