First of all I am so happy to be back in my studio today after a chaotic week off ...missed lots of fun challenges! This is my entry for Mixed Media Monday which was warm colors and my dress for Alice and Camilla's Dress Up September AND for Lots To Do butterfly challenge. I have never combined 3 challenges before but it just all went together so well and I've wanted to do the Lots To Do challenge with Zoe for a long time so here my piece. I was going to do a pale yellow dress for Dress Up this month but when I saw the warm colors challenge at MMM my thoughts turned to fall and orange butterflies seemed like a good idea! We are not having fall here at all but when football started it was always fall in our house growing up. My petite ultra feminine mother LOVED football and even though she had been transplanted to Florida from Ohio she never missed a good game. So fall it is!
I wanted to use Margaret's original dress shape this month...can't remember where I found it now....and then I went to town with a couple of MS butterfly punches I had in my butterfly drawer...yep I have a butterfly drawer. Then I used a piece of Splatter Net that has been in my stash forever for the top. So with sticky fingers and a couple hundred butterflies later I have my dress. Thanks for looking and I look forward as always to seeing what everyone does!
