My latest experiments were pure fun: I took a B/W image of myself from 1974 (what a difference 35 years makes!!), current images of my hands and feet, and printed them off on cardstock. Since I love gardening, I seem to want to save the seed packets from year to year to remember what flowers I had. Those pictures on that glossy paper became the background for the "headdress". The clean-up paper towels became the dress/body and all kinds of other items were added: beads, buttons, kimono cut-outs from my 2005 trip to Japan, and fringe. I used colored pencils to brighten the face. A small wire ring was added to the back for hanging.
