Here is my angel for the Art Bra I am working on. I haven't yet figured out what I'm doing with her hair, so it's flying a little loose...She's kind of a flat doll, since she'll go on the center of the bra. I had a great time making her dress - I dyed some parachute silk with Dye-Na-Flow and wrapped it sort of free-formed over her. Her face is embroidered, with a little chalk for added color. I also dyed the ribbon under her bodice, etc. to match the dress. She will have wings, of course and a halo.
The latest issue of CQMagOnline contains a Call for ArtBra Submissions. This is a "Can't Lose" proposition. There won't be any rejection letters. If your bra is one of the best, it might make it into the calendar. But even if it doesn't, your bra will be auctioned off and the money goes to support Breast Cancer research. There's no downside! It seems like a wonderful way to support this research and at the same time to be creative. Join me and make an Art Bra!
