I love making these! She starts with a paper mache base to create the body, then she gets framed in a variety of different frames and her top coat gets chosen. Normally, I do a collage using mixed medias, old print ads, vintage sheet music, pin up girls, this time Ichose to run with a steampunk feel. Using mixtures of materials, metal, leather and lace you can create a "steampunk" feel on anything. She has two coat hooks to hang whatever you desire, a few pockets below for pens, cell phones, a lower shelf to use for whatever you like. She can display necklaces, scarves, ties, laniards, awards ... the sky is the limit! This time I chose to use an old window to frame her up!
