What a beautiful day it is here in southwest lower Michigan!
All sunny and pretty and "at this moment" a perfect temp!
I had a bit of fun with a sweet chipboard dress from
It is called Little Girls Outfit Chipboard,
and guess what?
It is on clearance for only $1.50!!
I printed two different papers from the Crafty Secrets
"Birds and Blooms" digital papers collection.
Traced around the dress, cut them out
and adhered with modge podge.
I love, love this paper, and I used it for my last 4 projects
for Crafty Secrets...gorgeous I tell you, gorgeous!!
While the dress was drying, my husband and I went to a pool party!
Some friends and co-worker of ours just put in a new
and gorgeous pool...gee, I want one...lol!
We didn't stay real long, but long enough for
my modge podge to dry by the time we got home..LOL!
Once the dress was dry,
I sanded and inked all the edges
I added a bit of crochet trim from RRR around
the neckline, pocket and sleeves.
I fussy cut a little birdie on a branch
from Digital Birds & Blossoms 4 page download,
then "perched" him on the pocket.
A bit of diamond Stickles was added to the blooms.
I added a tiny bow and an "awkward" gem.
I was drinking my morning coffee and dropped
a splash of it right where you see the gem...go figure!
I kept it rather simple as I did not want to cover up the beautiful scripture at the bottom of the dress
which says "Nature is the Art of God".
