|English gown from c.1805-1810. Philadelphia Museum of Art|
I've collected my greenery by trimming our evergreens. Glad that this year's gown won't take as much as last year's 18th century one.
|Cedar, Yew, Fir, Juniper|
Starting from the bottom, I used all the juniper branches around the hem
Working my way upwards, I switched to the yew branches using the underside to create a stronger contrast between the different greens.
I like the different textures and the 'ombre' effect.
In my free time, I painted and dusted with sprinkles some pinecones, sedum branches and hydrangeas from my backyard. Almost everything I use is recycled or from around my house.
