Designing Dresses

I've been having fun "designing" some dresses. 
These dresses are made using vintage papers and encaustic beeswax.
I used a page from a vintage French book for this dress. The pocket, belt and collar are bits of a vintage map.
This dress painting is also an ornament.
 To create this dress I used a topographic map page from a vintage atlas. This map has such wonderful colors and patterns.
The pink and green colors in this thematic map make a lovely dress.
 All of these mixed media encaustic dress paintings are available for purchase in my shop.
