The colors and fabrics seem so luxurious! Man oh man how times change. When I went to prom in 1984, I wore a powder blue dress that looked like something from Gone With the Wind, hoop skirt and all. ha! My boyfriend (who then became my first husband) wore a white tux with blue bowtie and cumberbund. Seems like a lifetime ago!

I've never done paper mache but I think you need a barrier from the mold, like plastic wrap or something. I know one of the art teachers made some fantastic bowls with her students. I think she used aluminum foil or something on the bowl before they started layering the paper mache on top. I actually wanted to try and make something myself but the list of things I want to try is very, very long. :)

Hope you are having a wonderful day. Tammy

Incredibly beautiful, Sheila. I thought it was Kate Middleton and her wedding dress when I first looked. I loved the details on the shoes, the purse, the dress...so lovely!
Hugs,
