new art

This is what I made last weekend, between the theatre and parties and all the other weekend stuff. It was so easy. The base is a candle stick I got at the thrift store (75 cents) and the form is a dollar store doll with the appendages removed. I painted it and used a little webbing spray for texture. Then covered it with UTE and put gold embossing on the top. I just tore the strips of fabric and topped it off with a silk flower.
For those of you that enjoyed my David light switch, here are the two guys that hold up my mirror in the studio powder room. I'm just into funky things.

Thanks Debbie! I checked out Donna's blog (very cute) and love her ribbon storage. Guess what? I have one of those full size dress forms and tons of ribbon to store.I may have to give it a try.
