The Art of Making Dresses

Hi!! I hope you all had a wonderful Easter Day with your family!!  Here's my take of the sketch 251 in Scrapbookchallenges,  I was inspired by my lovely friend's page ... Jolanda you can see her page and the other design team pages ....HERE.  For this page I used pattern papers from Stamping'Up that my sweet friend Renee gave me.  I draw a dress form in a cardstock then I painted and stamped it.   And in the pictures, some dresses that I made for some of my clients, different styles and colors for each taste.

The sketch by Amanda....

More details of my page......
I used different pattern paper from Stamping'Up and cut them like the pattern papers and the buttons packs and used it like embellishments, these papers are very pretty....Thanks Renee...I Love it!!!!!!
Different clients, different personalities...different styles!!
I sew some buttons to the pattern paper for a real buttons package's look.

I love this other page that I made for Scrapbookchallenges Sketch 250 last week and I didn't post, a lot of complications here!! I tried to incorporate flowers to my boy page but looking a balance and I love the final result!!
For this page I used My Creative Scrapbook Limited Edition Kit that is full of Prima's products and I loved it.....Beautiful kit!!
I painted and stamped the background.  I LOVE , LOVE  the new Prima
Flocked Rub-Ons!!!

  14. Me has dejado sin palabras. Dios bendiga tus manos y tu creatividad. Cariños, Renee

  15. Both of these layouts are gorgeous Marilyn but the top one is so special, and especially for you, as it is your daily business - it is wonderful for you to have a record of it & you have showcased your photos so beautifully. The one of your son is very lovely too. Our teenage boys are so special to us. It is wonderful to see them growing into lovely young men right before our eyes!

  16. *slobber* just L-O-V-E your dresses!! in fact, I love everything you've put onto your layout, bellissima!! your boy has really grown into a very handsome young man, what a wonderful page you created about him! aah, so those flocked rub-ons are Prima, been wondering as I've seen them in a very rare few LOs. Really like how you have silhoutted and matted the repeated photos of him, makes them really stand out. Mwah mwah mwah!!!!

  17. ohhh goshhh my friend the layout with the dress is so cool design so beautiful and creative!!
