Pretty AND Gritty

 My latest project
 I bought 2 mannequins at an extreme discount
I covered the torso with paper mache first to give it texture and hide the pin holes. The project just morphed as I went along and eventually turned (unintentionally) into something with personal meaning. Nothing but the color was preconceived. It has this gritty urban feel, prettied up with real butterfly wings (from the newly donated stash). Its not quite done yet, but I'm happy with the results. I can't wait to start the second one!
