A Petite Dress Form

“Don't think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It's self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can't try to do things. You simply must do things.” ~Ray Bradbury

I am guilty of always over analyzing whatever I do, especially when it comes to creating something.

Not this time...I just went for it...And this is what came out.

Made entirely with bits and pieces I already had like a vintage perfume bottle topper, a crown button cover, a petite dress form I paper mache with old dictionary pages and....

a vintage crystal door knob...

I'm very curious to hear what you think...


Today I'm joining

Cindy's Show and Tell Friday at My Romantic Home


Courtney's Feathered Nest Friday at French Country Cottage


Thank you for stopping by for a visit.
Wishing everyone a wonderfully creative day.

Hugs and Kisses.

I am the same way. Think too much before I do something. I think you did a great job. It looks lovely. Next time I may take your advice and just do.

Rebecca said... her sweetie. I always over think things...takes me forever to get things finished when I do! :( Bah! LOVE YOUR CREATION!
