I was visiting Nan over at Nan's Niche and found out about this fun challenge on a site called Alice and Camilla.....there is an ongoing monthly Dress Up challenge and the dresses are all so wonderful. I am late to the party this year....but I know I will catch up...because these mini projects are so much fun to do....

I create a watercolour and ink painted dress for this challenge!!!

I think one of these watercolour dresses would look super cute in a nice frame ...so I think I will be making more of these.....

I also am so happy with my gardens this year....what a perfect summer....Lots of fun and the work is always worth it ....

Your dress is delightful especially with the matching handbag! The little dresses really are so much fun - I look forward to seeing more of yours.

(Your produce and pizza do look yummy - not to mention that delicious dessert!)

Your dress is adorable! Can't wait to see what you do next! Love WC and ink projects. That was my first medium and still my favorite.

Ohhhh Diana,
I LOVE your dress!!! Isn't this so fun? I don't know if you saw my Paris dress, but this is now my favorite challenge...
I made the ones for Aug-Nov...now I've to do December!
I love how all the dresses look different...it's all so precious!
Also, if you get a chance, look on the Dress Up challenge for July and there's a woman named Anna from Frosted Petunia...She has hers hanging in a miniature closet--it's adorable!!! (I know you'd love it too.)

Well, I am so excited to see yours--it's so perfect!!!

Deborah said...

Swoonalicious! All of it. I want a dress like that, although you would look better in it. I have serious garden envy right now!!! How wonderful. I think I should come up there for the month of August.

I love your July dress, a gorgeous summery creation! I can't wait to see your catch up! Great to have you playing along! Margaret

What a darling first dress for this project. I'm sure you will catch up very soon. This watercolor is wonderful. I can't draw anything, so am in awe of your skills. I like how you plan to frame it rather than put it into a wardrobe/closet. Hope to see more soon.
