The Traveling Girl

The Mannequin Mission Part Deux

Phyllis is certainly coming along. Today I worked on the upper part of her body. To cover some of the gross parts I used an antique colored paper I bought at “Micheals.” I found images on google of some of my favorite French designers andPt. deux

 printed them out on the paper. After that I ripped them instead of cutting them from the page. I think the ripping gives it more of a fabric look. I fastened them to the mannequin with common pins. I’ve only done part of it so far, because I ran out of pins and paper. So this is Phyllis so far!!


In other news; I bought these amazing pens! These pens are supposed to last 7 WHOLE YEARS! They are made from recycled products, and they are pretty much adorable. I’ve been using mine for a week now, and they are fabulous.

You can purchase them online, here!
