when a sketch becomes 3D :)

This cotton white dress  has a halter top with a sweet heart neckline . The top has several darts and pleats which crisscrosses to give the dress some dimension. the bottom of the dress is gathered to give it this full look and also have pocket on the side to carry a couple items just incase you do not want to carry a purse.

Hey fashion people well i have spent several hours  sewing this week and created two garments. The first garment i created was a cotton white dress. I was lucky that i found about three yards of white fabric because i did not have any money to purchase fabric. Sometime you just have to work with what you have so that is exactly what i did. I am now debating whether i should dye the material or leave it white. If i do decide to dye it i will update you with the final look and a how to dye fabric using vegetables.:)
Now here goes the second garment which i recently finished. With the storage of selections of fabric i found some scrap fabric. I thought of a garment that i would be able to construct with the limited pieces of fabric. So i design a garment which can be worn at the office or a night out for a couple drinks. I wanted to create a garment appropriate for the work place but yet a little sexy to be worn out.
hope you enjoyed viewing my garments please comment im looking forward to see what u think and if any one has a question leave a comment or  email me @ ( lizette_soria@yahoo.com  )

Hey Dolls!!! Want to add some cool effects to your boring nails ???well here are two products that you are going to want to buy. although these products been released serveral months ago many do not know about these nail polishes, maybe because where im from many stores do not carry these products. If your store do not sell these items you can ask them to add them in their store, or you may  purchase them online. :)  so this is how you use it simple paint your nails with any color that you prefer. This will be the background color then next you will use the crackle/ shatter nail polish over the dried nail polish and let the magic happen. In seconds the crackle/ shatter will start to create a reptile like textile. After the nail polish did its magic you may now apply a layer of clear nail polish to seal the colors and thats all. You will have some cool unique nails!! so go out and buy some and have a fun shatter and crackle time :)

here are some NATURAL COSMETICS you are going to want to try.
Cucumber anti-blemish mask
Cucumber is calming while rosemary is a super-effective antiseptic. You'll find the egg white will tauten on your face.
2.5 cm (1 inch) chunk of cucumber
1 drop rosemary essential oil
1 egg white
Whizz the cucumber in a blender until it becomes completely liquid, then add the drop of rosemary essential oil. Whisk the egg white until stiff, fold in the cucumber mixture and smooth over the face avoiding the eyes and mouth area. Remove after 15 minutes using a clean, damp washcloth.
TIP: If you have a spotty back or shoulders, ask a friend or partner to apply the mixture to your back: it makes a wonderful 'back pack'.
* Rosebud lips
This luscious lip-slick gets its purplish-pink colour from alkanet.
75ml (3fl oz) olive oil
1 tablespoon jojoba oil
45g (11/2oz) dried alkanet root, chopped
20g (3/4oz) beeswax
9 drops rose essential oil
Gently heat both oils in the top of a double-boiler for about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat, add the alkanet root and steep for around 30 minutes, to extract the colour from the root. Strain the root from the oils through a muslin cloth and compost the root. Return the oils to the double-boiler with the beeswax. Once this has melted, remove from heat and add the rose essential oil, drop by drop. Pour into small, sterilised pots or jars. Allow to cool thoroughly before capping.
*Aloe vera cleanser
30ml aloe vera gel
50ml olive oil
30ml rosewater
4 drops rose essential oil
2 drops grapefruit seed extract
Blend all the ingredients together in a food processor and decant into a small bottle. Ideally, keep in the fridge. Shake before use, as the ingredients may separate. Massage into your face and remove with either a muslin cloth or water.
also you can use olive oil as a makeup remover which at the same time conditions your eyelashes and skin. How to videos soon will be posted, so stay tune guys and thanx for those who are reading my blogs:) Have fun while making your own cosmetics!!!!!! Good Luck!

 La Loteria is a mexican game similar to Bingo. instead of numbers on the cards their are images with the name of an object or person. This game was first introduce to me when i was about seven years old during my visit  in mexico. We all had a great time and this memory stays vivid and embeded in my mind because this was really the first time i mingled with my family.
My favorite card from the deck is el corazon (The heart) i just think the card has meaning to it. Every heart feels pain and it is represented here in the picture with an arrow thru it and also i just like the vivid red color and yellowish greenish background:) 
With these cards i decided to be a little creative. I covered and old plain black box and made it come to life by glueing these funky colorful cards and brush on a thin layer of Resin. As you may know resin is now my new best friend i just love how it makes everything shiny and gives everything a finish look.
well thanx guys for staying tune ... please Leave a comment below on a game you remember playing as a child and why is it your favorite. :) 
 This game La Loteria or Bingo is a game of chance just like life you have to take chances in order to win. :) remember la vida es bella ( Life is Beautiful) even at its worst of times theirs always beauty in it. Add me on facebook http://www.facebook.com/lavidaesb3lla
