A Little Dress Collage

almost back to normal
22 little bears are ready for Hugglets and with one week to go
I only need to plan the table display,
prepare the package materiale, business cards ect
phew...

Going to have some studio time
for other creations again.

I´ve been having fun with a new collage


I´ve called this collage
{All Dressed Up}



playing with the lace again
and with an old book cover as background



I then made a little dress
to put on top
added a little pocket on the front and
decorated it with little pieces of lace
some vintage flowers
and a wonderful resin piece I´ve got
from my sweet friend Lisa


here´s a little close up of some of the layers of lace



My inspiration for the dress
came from my other sweet friend Dawn
Some time ago she posted about how to make a little worn dolls dress
and I thought it would be fun to try and make one.
Not nearly as pretty as hers, but I´m kind pleased with
how it turn out on the collage.



What do you think?

Thanks for popping in today
and wishing you a wonderful weekend.

I´m working on the bears for this fair right now.
So far I have about 12 bears finished...

Now you know what I mean about
being behind and working REALLY HARD - lol

Here´s a little preview of some
of the bears that will
be travelling with me to London



This little one is Baloo.
He´s made of a wonderful green
vintage furniture fabric.
I Really like the old worn look this fabric gives the bears.
He does look well loved, doesn´t he.


and here´s two sweet little girls.
This is Norma on the left
and Asta on the right

show so far, so she´s going to be the
