I've been busy creating again.  I love dress forms and mannequins and they just seem to flock to me.  I have a garage full of mannequins right now, so I decided to alter one.  I used vintage dress patterns, book pages and sheet music.  I love how "she" turned out!  I also made the necklace on the mannequin.  I used a tray that held salt and pepper shakers.  I altered the tray with pictures, words, and old paper with cursive handwriting.  Love making those.

Thanks for sharing your talent.

I love your work! (It's back-to-school time...that'll give you a little extra time to create, right?) :)

Take care and thanks for sharing!
