An early upload for me today - I really must get the garage sorted out and if the sun comes out properly play in the garden for a while.

Anyway, part inspired by an image seen in Stratford yesterday - the mangled doll bit - and I also remembered that I had this dress stuffed in the bottom of a drawer.

As usual - it seemed a good idea at the time....

Admit it - you just like wearing the bag and the shoes ........... anything else in the shot is only there for justification

Me again - drug free unless you include a strong coffee and taking a break from clearing out the garage. Just a tad scruffier than I was this morning!

Glad you approve - a bit of time was spent on this rummaging in the bear-making box in the loft for the half finished teddy - for some reason I never got round to stuffing the rest of him. Then a bit of gentle work on the doll with a pair of pliers to remove the head and a chunk of the neck too. I'm really nice to all my toys - honest......

Ok Roy - I do like these shoes - in photos anyway, wearing them is another matter. As for the bag - well the inside out Primark ones are better - these new ones are a bit on the small side - or is my head on the big side? Oh and I need the tan to fade - too much variation in skin colours going on at the moment......

I reckon you're all as odd as I am if you like this Smile I'm glad you do though!

I had a look at the 'Related Technique' next to my blurb about making people beautiful. Nowhere does it mention the use of a paper bag!

Thanks again folks Smile Hopefully I'll have a few more interesting props in the next week or so. I've not a clue what precisely but hopefully something inspirational!

The shoes are definitely for show nowadays - baby bunions do not make going en pointe very comfortable!

Edna Carrier - I like - but think I'll stick to plain old Alison thank you!

Thanks again everyone!

Runaway thoughts and silly comments are all good - I encourage both Smile Thanks for commenting on my portfolio Dave - much appreciated and apologies for the delay - I seem to be doing an excellent headless chicken/blue arsed fly impression at the moment!
