I'm a Material Girl

It's time for a new challenge at Try It On Tuesday.
This time it's all about The Material Girl!
Time to use fabric, trim, sewing, threads. Show us your Material Girl side.
I made my page by pasting down a piece of dress material tissue. Then I die cut 3 sewing forms, painted them and finished by designing outfits for each with some fabric and trim. 
I finished by added some threads, some hand drawn needles and a little sequin bling. 
I had a lot of fun making this page.
I hope you have some fun and decide to join us for this challenge.
Thanks for stopping by my blog to visit.

Really fun page, Erika. I like all the outfits you've designed. Have the fashion houses come knocking yet?
I've been off-line for a while and last night I read through all of your posts that I'd missed. Gosh you are one big bundle of energy. Swimming in the lake, making a fabulous travel journal, off on an adventure trip, gardening, making the porch look fantastic - not to mention making all the fabulous art and working full-time.
Hope your garden was not too overgrown when you came back (ours was) and thanks for your visit today, much appreciated as always.
