Changing the doll dress banner

Had to make a larger banner and posted the pics but wasn't happy with how they looked, even tho, each part was a separate paper. Going to work on them a little more. Tried the 3 ring notebook yesterday to make into an altered journal. Started with iris folding technique , I love this and will pot pictures later of this craft. I'm not into scrapbooking but these would make a lovely card. I will use them for other purposes. Haven't added my "School daze" assembage yet here, but the picture is in the group. PID. Laundry today, pillows and all the bedding. What a way to waste a lovely day. Cleaning the oven.

new work added

The little dresses are for a doll drees banner challenge at PID. The other "sewing fairies" is a background with ripped collage sewing notions sheets and gesso and acrylic paint All the images are from PID(Paper Imagery Designs) This was a lot of fun. The dresses are fabric with aprons, lace ribbon and images.
The 2 page spread pages are from a RR book . This is the last leg of the journey which began in April and included 9 other artists. We have all stayed on track for this project which I think is amazing.I am very excited about getting my book back with all of the work by this group.
A few days ago however one of out girls lost a son . So Sad for her and her other family members. My thoughts and prayers are with her.

Haven't done this for a long time, been busy with other things and health issues. Joined the PID group and am really having a lot of fun with the challenges the mingles and Thursday techniques. Done some different backgrounds and inchie cubes , will put pics in later -paper towel background and ink techniqwe backgrounds. Also worked on 2 mosaic garden balls for friends very sparkley with a lot of iridescent tile and mirrors. Really happy with that. Jerry and I bought an unfinished buffet for the front entry and I tiled the top with a large 16" plate and all broken china pieces-burgundy wood with antique brass handles on drawers and doors- dry brushed black on high points. Will put in pics tomorrow. Doing a round robin book with a great group of girls and it will be done on Sept. 29th, Am so anxious to get my book back and see all the work by the other artists. So much for now.
