March Dress up ........ a leeettle late!
March sort of go away on me and even though i started this dress at the start of march , here it is half way through April and no idea what to do for April !!
so guess what,that may be late too!lol
Lucy made me the birdcage for this dress, shes so good with twisting wire into wonderful quirky things! i gessoed it, then painted it with brown and orange paint and sprinkled on cinnamon, most of which came off in the attaching.
We spent an afternoon making birds too from masking tape but the birds that i had in my head came out on the cover of CPS. i couldn't believe it!
anyhow, then i decided on a print out and some dangly beads.... see the meshy stuff underneath, luey wrecked one of those bathroomn fluffy scrubber things , its got heaps of fabric in it and was perfect for this.
The lovely leafy tissue paper is from Blue Bazaar.
I have been really enjoying visiting all the dressups, i love seeing everybody's interpretations and some of the materials used.
We had some drama just after Easter. First day back to work hubby was moving some metal furniture and it slipped and gashed his forearm. A tourniquet, ambulance and lots of stitches later, he was a bit sore and sorry for himself. Hes been a good patient up until now and is driving us nuts ;(( of course it should be healed after two weeks and everything working properly [doesn't have full use of his little finger] and no pain! they put 6 stitches into the muscles so i think it might take a while, he was lucky he only scraped the tendons. I cant look at it, never could be a nurse so lucy has done a fine job cleaning it.
And lastly but not least look at this fabulous Loot that i won when Tina had a giveaway in honor of grandmother recently. I couldn't believe it when it arrived this week, i just kept pulling it out and covered the kitchen table with it. All sorts of papers , stickers images,ticket stubs, you name it was in there!! THANK YOU Tina , you are very generous!!
