Wedding Dress Challenge Projects

19 Oct

The Wedding Dress Challenge was such a fun project to do. You can read about the original challenge here. The idea was to take pieces of wedding dresses and create something new with them. The participants could cut them apart, dye them, shred them, add other stuff to them, anything they wanted. The creativity was wonderful and I am glad to share these wonderful works of art with you.

Here is an idea of what the participants started with.

      That is one of the best parts for me too Linda. Everyone goes in such different directions, even though starting at the same point. I’m so glad you participated in this challenge. Your piece was stunning.
