Mixed Media Monday~

This weeks theme is: Hanging out... Here is Pete hanging out on the Christmas tree~I've used an old-old box that I picked up for .45cents as the base for my piece. The "snowballs" that were packaged inside the box were just small styrofoam balls-- funny huh? I carefully opened up the flimsy box at the seam and reinforced the whole box with some thin chipboard then I reglued it back together. In keeping with the snowball theme of the box I used a little larger styrofoam balls then what came in the box originally and covered them with textured paint and glitter. I used my favorite little cutie-pie whom I named "Pete" to "hang-out"--- literally! What a face that little cherub has huh?
