A New Torso


Here we are, mid week already! I have been working on giveaways & torsos. My friend, Minnie at http://www.herminnie.blogspot.com/ is doing a show this weekend in Carlsbad, California. She asked me to make up some torsos for her to display her jewelry on. I made her a 16" torso a while back & now I've done a couple smaller ones. These are 10 inches. I love this process so much because it is so forgiving. If you don't like it...put on another layer of something else. I am posting the one that I though was the prettiest of the two. I will make a couple of larger ones next week. We are off to San Francisco for the weekend (leaving tomorrow) so I will resume artwork when I return. I am going to try & hit the Alameda swap meet which I've heard so much about & another trip to Urban Ore in Berkely. The only problem...they are predicting rain......in California...can you believe it!!!

This one looks absolutely amazing! I love the way the yellow looks like hearts over her breasts. I hope you have a very fun weekend away.

Hi Diane, the new torso is very pretty. It looks like a nice dress, very summery colors. Nice and cheerful. We hope you have a swell time as you travel and see fun places.
Be safe, and guess you better take an umbrella- maybe one you decopaged on!

You have outdone yourself with this one. You are really on a roll with these torsos. I visited Herminne's blog. What beautiful work she does, and I love her photos.
