So many of you have commented on the header of my blog of the ladies in newspaper dresses. It was " an evening At the Smiths" and lord knows how many cocktails they had while creating their dresses, but I DO know they had fun!
So, here's what I am proposing! Create a dress out of newspapers! Creation may be life size or for a paper doll. Evening appropriate pants and top are acceptable. Take a picture of your creation (on you or a paper doll), post to your blog with a link to this post and leave a comment here!
I put the pic of my mom on my side bar with link to this post. Feel free to use the picture below if you wish!
There will be 1 design chosen and the creator will win a special prize! Gentleman designers welcome too!!!
Special guest judge, Rice Zachery-Freeman has agreed to view the entries and select the winner. Rice is a well known writer of articles re artists and their work published in various magazines at Somerset Studio Publications and other art magazines!
Heather's theme is "Wisdom you've learned from books". Since I love gardens and gardening I picked one of my favorite books. It is a collection of letters between a mother and daughter in England. The mother is an experienced gardener and her daughter is just beginning to plant her first garden at her new home. Quite charming!

Butterfly is made of paper with seeds in it and you soak it and plant it in a pot and wait for the flowers to grow! Unique idea!!! I found it at the nursery.

Art has become for me "therapy". I can celebrate happy occasions or work through sad or difficult times by creating art. I love creating special art for others. I often use old family pictures in my pieces and feel good about giving them birth again. I love to laugh,am very sentimental, and cry more happy tears than sad ones. Loyality, honesty, and sharing good things with others is important to me. I enjoy seeing all the new art of artists friends and am learning something new every day!
Laughing makes better wrinkles on your face!
