She wondered if she would ever grow up

She wondered if she would ever grow up enough to wear a real party dress
Thank you for pushing me to continue thinking about the "On the clothesline" series.  For this art journal page, I did experiment with cutting a dress out of plaster and applying to a regular page.  It's in response to the Creativity Boot Camp prompt, "grow." The journaling is written on the clothesline.

Love it Rinda! I'm still wondering when I'll ever be grown up enough to wear a beautiful big girl now party dress!

a perfect addition to your series. you can actually "feel" the pull toward the party dress, the yearning to grow up and begin a life.

This is such a lovely project, I'm wondering what size pages you are making? I love the colours in this one too.

Ah, I remember having a "real grown-up" dress. It wasn't anything very daring or outrageous, but it made me feel very "posh" and "grown up" - at the age of 19!

The series is wonderful,Rinda .... and I clearly remember that desire to wear a real 'grown up' dress....and high heels! I love the picture you've used....so evocative of childhood.

Oh yes I remember how it felt to want to wear a 'grown up' dress. Great page.
