Mojito Mama

Before I get too far along in my blogging journey, I felt I must introduce you to my muse, Mojito Mama.  I bought this simple wooden dress form a couple of years ago at a thrift store.  I painted her in a graphic leaf motif using acrylic paints, topping her off with a coat of varnish.  I gave her popsicle stick arms with mojito bottle cap hands.  For her face, I used a face rubber stamp on muslin, stuffing it a bit with fiberfil.  I cut the bottom from a soda can and then cut the remaining sides in slits to giver her some hair.  I glued the fabric fabric face in the soda can bottom, adding pop top earring for some style.  A girl's got to have some cool earrings!
