13-unlucky for some

I lived at a flat with the number 13 for quite some time, so have lost my superstition about the number-I think! This dress is lovely-but I always worry that I look like I have gone out in my dressing gown. It is from Hennes (a cheap yet stylish clothing chain) so I have seen lots of other people in the dress-or its rusty red version, and they look ok, so I hope for the best! I loved the bamboo patterns on it and the way it has brown on black.
The other side was a drawing of some brooches-it went wrong so I gessoed and painted, then did the nursery thing of drawing around my hand-outside of my hand, then coloured and drew-using weird souffle pens-they have to dry to appear. It has my snake ring-but next week I am wearing labradorite-for protection-look at Kasia Blue!

I can't believe that it's taken me two weeks to come back - and what an amazing lot you have done already! My favourites are 1 (that kind of thing really appeals to me), 2, 4, 5, 7, 9 and 13. I absolutely love it! Great work!

Hi, Sarah! Great pages! I like the aqua color of the hand's page against the brown and oranges of the dress. The labradorite is stunning! :-)
