mmmm.... these all sound so good!

One of my favorites is avocado, spinach, cheese (of your choice - I like swiss) and red pepper hummus. YUM!

Agreed that tulle petticoats are the way to go! I ended up using the twill tape around the waist and the dress worked out great. Thanks!!

Thank you, I appreciate the help. I will add some twill tape around the waistline and hope that helps. She did try it on with the petticoat the other day and it seemed to help with some of the weight.

Hi Everyone!

It has been a long time since posting... but I had a question I was hoping to get some help with. I am making a close friend's wedding dress and it is getting very heavy with all of the different layers going on it. I already have a lining that has boning all over the top. But, I am wondering if there is another way to add structure to the dress so it is not wanting to pull down from the weight?

I have seen in some dresses that there is elastic at the waist. Does anyone know what kind of elastic and how this is done? Is this even the best option?

Any help or suggestions at all would be GREATLY appreciated as the wedding is coming up super quick!

Thanks fellow craftsters!!

Thank you so much for your nice comments!!  Grin

Fabulous! I always try with the carbon/transfer paper - but I guess I don't press down hard enough and end up doing most by hand

I know! It was not easy I had to keep putting the original picture back up and seeing how it all fit together. There were a lot of lines that I just kind of guessed on. Like you said it always just ends up turning out!

Hi All,

I have not posted in a long time, but wanted to share one of my recent finished projects. I am really sorry if it should not be in this forum, but I considered it more of an image reproduction than an actual painting b/c of the process used to create it. Please let me know if you feel it should be posted elsewhere.

I really needed/wanted a big piece of pop art to put over my couch - so I figured I would go ahead and paint one! My husband and I LOVE the Rat Pack and I really wanted something candid and fun. Anyway, I was really excited about the way it turned out and it fits into the style of the rest of the room really nice as well. I am hoping to redo it soon and fix Dean's face a little. I do not like the way the colors look on him as much as on Frank and Sammy.

Enjoy!! Thanks for looking.

Here is the process:

I found a picture that I liked and played around with it in Photoshop until I got down to manageable "pop art" shapes.

Orginal Picture

After working in Photoshop

After enlarging it and transferring it to the canvas via transfer paper. I started painting - basically like "Paint by numbers" at that point.

Work in Progress

Thanks again for looking!!  Have a nice day!  Smiley

YES!!!  I would SO be in. I posted this idea awhile ago, and got very little response. I am so glad that this one seems to be getting quite a bit more response!   Smiley
