Theme Thursday

This week's theme is Torso - Mannequins. I was quite thrilled to see this as it makes such a change to try working with a different shape. I also planned to do two but my check up with the nurse made me very late home. I had plans for a Parisien themed one as I love last weeks Paris theme. So I might just do another one just as soon as Im caught up with all my current commitments. I went for floral. The whole torso is coverd in 7Gypsies scrpit paper & inked with distress inks. I then built up my design using various stamps. The butterfly lady is mounted on foam tape. To me she represents the centre of a woman.

I was so late I had no time to get to the bank & my bank is murder on Fridays, you know the one, queue out the door on only one cashier!! I will be throwing teddy out of the pram tomorrow. I did however get weighed at my check up & am now 9 stone. I'm not certain that is correct as last week at Boots I was 9 stone 4lbs. Still I have practically lost one stone & have only 4 or 5 lbs to go! Quite an achievement in 9 weeks.
