Coincidentally, I did the same thing with rose petals. If you ever do this again, smear a thick layer of Mod Podge on them. I used dried roses that felt kind of fragile when I started, but after the glue dried they were pliable and looked fantastic. They held all day and didn't crack or tear. I also sewed some on a dress and they held up really, really well.

Mod Podge = miracle glue.

That is so cool!! I love your designs, you're really good. You've inspired me to try some applique of my own this weekend! Thanks.

Gorgeous! My prom dress was just fabric and beads, but it cut my skin to ribbons! How did you avoid slicing yourself? Did you line it? How did the edges feel?

What a great job and what an AWESOME dress!!

These are so awesome. I love them!!

The flat top made me think of Kid n' Play...have you seen "House Party" recently? You should rewatch it if you haven't, you'll be inspired.

Awesome robot painting! It doesn't suck at all, it's really cool. I like it so much I might paint a robot today, too.

Also, whether you like it or not, you're an artist. You're moved to create things, which is the only part of the definition of "artist" that matters. And you're a good one - your work is aesthetically pleasing, for one. For another, your story is really touching and engaging. It made me think of something Vonnegut wrote in Timequake. His brother asked for Kurt's opinion on some paintings he'd done - he asked "is it art?" Kurt wrote a long letter back. Among the advice was this bit:

"Any work of art is a conversation between two human beings, and it helps a lot to know who is talking at you....there are virtually no respected paintings made by persons about whom we know zilch."

Thanks for sharing with us. I hope everything works out for you. You have a remarkably clear head about all of this, and you should be proud of the woman you've become despite the lousy circumstances.

No pattern, really?? You did such a great job! He looks like he's straight out of Niblonia.

From the thumbnail on the main page, I honestly thought this was a picture of a real person. The neck is the best part, she looks so real!! Great job, I'm really impressed.

Bet he's a little nervous about how his new wifey's kids are going to feel about having a new stepfather. What a great way to put him at ease and welcome him to the family! You're a thoughtful girl.
