Hello my beloved bloggy friends, thank you so much for all your lovely words for myself and my family in regard for DITA it's unbelievably harder than I though it would be only having her a few years, But she isn't here and I miss her terribly and your word were so helpful I had a good cry (crying now too sniff) But I won't talk about it again to you all but THANK YOU SO MUCH.
Hello fellow crafters, have something to show you (at last he he) over at Artist Trading Club There is a new swap for JUNE. And it's dresses or dress up ;0) oh and I had alot of fun making these, I hope you can see in the photos ok. I couldn't see when I took the photos the sun was SO BRIGHT! And am I loving this weather or what? oh yes I am, so very very much (sorry for all you HF Suffers) but I love the sun. I don't sit out in it baking by any means but I just love the fact the sun is in the sky giving much needed heat and the sky is such a beautiful blue in our corner of the world.
I also wanted to have a wee bit of a theme making the dresses, so I thought I would go for ' A dress for all seasons' the first is Spring! You can click and enlarge the photos I think. So I followed the Tutorial (TT) by Margret for the back ground to put the dresses in. Just pop along to the link Here and you will find the instructions. Really very simple to follow and I love the end result don't you?
Here is Summer! as you can see, I have basically done them all the same. I have made the back grounds the got the sewing machine out stitched in appropriate colours then added some distress inks to match round the edges to give a softer appearance. each had a stamped corner and a dress added.
And finally Winter.
I do hope you have enjoyed a look at these, and if you are in the swap hope you liked the sneaky peak to what you may get this month. It's not too late to join in if you fancy having a go. you just have to have sent them in by the end of the month. I hope to get these sent to Chris tomorrow. Thank you for stopping by, oh I almost forgot (how rude of me) welcome to my new followers, you are so very welcome to share my crafty journey and I hope I can share in yours to, so leave a comment. Love Dawn xx
