Is There A Skill You’d Like To Master?

The Paris Sewed Story Up

Paris Sewed Up – Digital Collage

Ah…Paris in the Springtime. And Spring is such a dreamy Season…finally being able to shake off the cold Winter weather and opening the doors to warmer sweet breezes.

The next challenge for the Lunagirl Moonbeam Design Team is “Sewing”.  I do appreciate the talent of anyone who can sew. Although my Mom is an excellent seamstress, it was a skill I never mastered.

When looking through the beautiful Lunagirl images, the woman with the wistful smile appealed to me.  When I think about sewing, this is how I feel. I am ever hopeful that someday I will go beyond my very skillful button replacement sewing and hem stitching upping. So when I think of sewing thoughts run to Fashion and Fashion comes home to Paris.

I wanted the woman to take center stage in the work. From my own digital ephemera collection I started the piece with a postcard of the Eiffel Tower with postage stamp. I added pattern paper complete with directions. And a dream isn’t a dream unless you have a limitless sky surrounding you. I finished the collage with the joyfully optimistic yellow roses…perhaps a symbol of her future in Fashion Design!

I guess my sewing dreams will continue. What skill would you like to master?
