I love it when I have an epiphany and it turns out!
I'm actually surprised it did turn out since I was having a pretty weird night and morning...it felt like a Monday to be honest!
About 10:30 pm last night I decided to cut my hair...not a bad thing normally...I use to be a Cosmetology instructor I cut my hair all the time...though not normally at this time of night--What the heck was I thinking!?! As I was using, what I thought were the thinning shears, actually turned out to be my regular shears!! Horrors just as I made the cut I knew it cr** it was too late! I am thankful I have enough hair for at least 3 people because I now have short pieces that just don't blend in and are gonna have to grow out unless I want to have a mullet or cut my hair short which is a no on both counts!
Next I woke up at 3am and couldn't go back to sleep, try as I do I'm awake and my mind wanders and BAM! :::insert epiphany music here::: an idea for my Torso Challenge popped into my head!
Then about 5 am I hear a sudden gush of water spilling over outside by our above ground pool....a gasket had blown off one of the hoses and the pump was pumping water by the gallons.....I run and shut off the pump then yelled for my sons since hubby works graveyard right now...thankfully they are very handy young men and they managed to get it fixed.
I'm thinking about this time I should just go back to bed and start the day over, but can't I'm awake and its time to get up! So instead I work on my idea see below:
I began by heating up a metal
ice pick and burned holes
though the paper torso
Next I adhered some metal washer
thingies over a couple of the holes. Then
I ran the torso though my Xyron and
adhered it to some copper foil
Girls Just Wanna
What I used to finish the torso were bits and pieces of things I've collected: rusty chains hubby brings home to me, the head and charms I believe came from a swap, but I can't remember who created them, so my apologies for not giving credit. The brass tag is another goody brought home from hubby.
