Frida Inspired

We are having a little scarecrow contest in my village and I was feeling inspired.  Thank you to my friend Racheal for loaning the beautiful Mexican dress.   It's been a while since I've made a scarecrow so this was fun even though I should be working on a million other things right now!

I used one of those cheap plastic pumpkin pails from Target ($1) and papier mache strips to cover it.

Painted and sealed the head

Some flowers in her hair of course and those cool hand earrings

Here she is in all her finery

And here is one Racheal and I created for our Artisan Gallery...An Artiste with an exceptionally long neck creating his masterpiece.

Recommended Reading

Just finished this book which was very entertaining.  A bit like A.S. Byatt's "Possession", "Out of Africa and a season of Downton Abbey all rolled up in one good mystery with some romance thrown in for good measure.
