Thinking Outside of the Box

I wanted to try and change up my mixed media canvases - add more depth, texture. Inspired by other projects I have seen, I wanted to do a dress. I grabbed some old doilies that were my grandmother's and went to work. I molded the top of the dress out of a toilet paper tube and used the doilies for the skirt. I even copied a photo of my grandmother for the window frame. I am pleased with the end result.



Adding this to PCC Magazine Monday Challenge 134. This is the inspiration,

Also joining Carolyn Dube's Let's Play to show neglected art supplies some love! I brought out old Rubons and  chipboard!
