I am so excited to work on my first "make do" and am thrilled with his progress. As you can see, he has a mache nose. And for a new twist, I added mache eyes for extra dimension. I think, the addition of mache eyes will keep his hat from traveling down his face, too! ;) After a little more shading, his makeup will be complete. Then, it will be off to the spray booth for some sealer...

Gourd Snowman "Make Do" Work in Progress
Remember those bed springs that I purchased many months ago?? Well, I am finally getting around to playing with one of them. I have been fascinated by the primitive "make do's" and am finally working on one of my own. :) My little snowman started out as a cannonball gourd. And as you can see, he is still waiting on his upcycled wool sweater hat and scarf. I hope to get them and him completed this weekend. He has been chilling ;) on his perch patiently. The studio has been quiet the last couple of weeks while I have been training full time for a new daytime job. My new hours will be part time (unless I'm needed to fill in for vacations). So... Back to the studio for me... Yay!!! :)
