I'm inspired by so many things - nature - photography - commercials - people and sometimes interesting and unique items. When I had an opportunity to obtain some store mannequins, all I could think of was how I was going to alter them into art pieces. It took me a few weeks of looking at the pile of them sitting in my craft room. I've never seen an altered mannequin before - but I had seen altered dress forms - and I found them very unique.
So, I decide to enhance the colour of the background on the mannequin and the results are shown on the "Unique 101" page further on in the blog. You may find them vintage, modern and even trendy. All I know is I sold them fast.
Since I started working with products from a new company in the USA (check my feed to your right), I wondered how they would look covered in coloured papers and flowers? Hmmm - I just may have found my summer project.
