Mona's Makeover - I decided that Mona Lisa was long overdue for a makeover. She has size 15 seed bead corkscrew hair. I made felt clothes and then bead embroidered the fabric with size 11 seed beads. Her fishnet stockings are made from netted fabric. Her feet were cut down so that they are smaller. She wears black beaded boots with heels. Her belt is made of ultra suede and her belt buckle is a small handmade wire butterfly. She's a bit of a harlot! She measures 3".

A spread from an altered book. On the right side is a skull with fabric cowboy shirt. The entire piece sits in a clear pocket and is removable. A silver concho buckle decorates the pocket. On the reverse side is a cut out of a Native American mask. The mask flaps open to reveal additional masks.
A handmade journal done for a swap. The journal is hardbound with a cover of crinkled paper painted with Lumiere. The face is made of UTEE and the body is also crinkled paper. Angelina fibers are incorporated into the cover paper and leaves adorn the head. Assorted beads hang from the waxed linen threads.
