Mixed Media Monday - Playing Cards

Hi Everyone....

the theme this week on Mixed Media Monday is "Playing Cards" so I created some dress forms and added some cards for the backgrounds....

I don't know about you...but I love dress forms...small...medium ...large ones...I have a few in my studio and I hang small pieces of art on them....and necklaces I made....they become a nice back drop for showcasing artwork....I also love to place my paper dolls hanging from them....

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!!! and here's to a creative week ahead....
Hugs
Diana

These are great Diana! I don't know if you remember those Wacky Pack cards, but I got some fabric and made a suit out of it when I was 14...gads, I actually wore it! Your card dresses remind me of those days! Fun!
