“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”

May Paper Dress

Another dress for the Dress Up Challenge at Alice and Camilla.
May isn't too hot here in the desert,We get a few nice evenings...
I used an old vineyard calendar for the main part of the dress,the picture made me feel like a cool fresh breeze was on my skin.The 'grapes' are pearl beads that were painted with 3D paint, then dusted with red micro glitter.

Have a beautiful day!


  1. What a beautiful dress. It seems lovely and cool feeling. The grapes are so prettyQ

  2. Marfi,

    You did a great job. Neat to see the end results.

    Saturday was very fun.


  3. I love all the beautiful colors on this one. It really does remind me of a desert sky...and also of the Napa Valley here with all the grape vines. I know I keep saying it but I just love your dress template!

  4. Super colours and wonderful effects you've created! I love the detail and the little touch of sparkle! Fab!

  5. Wow, I'm really, really behind. Those grapes are SOOOOOO realistic looking. You did an incredible job making them. I really like the butterfly and ribbons you used on the waist, too. Very detailed and lovely dress.


thank you for your comment, I really appreciate it:)
