Couldn't sleep so I made art!



Last night I could not sleep for the life of me. I had major insomnia! I even tried to crawl under my comfy covers but nooooo!

So, I just decided to stay up. Since it was nice and quiet I decided to  do another piece of artwork. Now I have to admit that I did not take before and after shot of my progress so I will have to walk you briefly through it. I made a choir girl.

I took a plastic soda bottle and cut off the top. I added white lights to the bottle. I then inserted a styrofoam ball that I had painted brown.

At a local thrift store I had found a Santa tissue box cover. After disassembling that, I took what was left and covered the bottle with the material that made it look like a dress.

Santa's "cheeks" became ear muffs that I attached with some gold garland that I also found at the thrift store. 

I made a "song" book for my little choir girl to hold. After everything was dry, I drew a simple face on her.

This is what she looks like. I think she is cute.
