Sweating the Small Stuff.......

Will Mom Notice The Holes In My Sweaters

Actually Karna 1268 caught my eye on Etsy with her unusual doll sculptures she makes from sweater pieces. As usual, I am attracted by all the different techniques, colors and mediums used in one piece----sort of a three dimensional collage, if you will.

I don't know about you, but this surely gives new inspiration to those old sweaters you couldn't quite throw away! I do agree that Karna is extremely talented and original, so perhaps she makes it easier than it truly is. I hope you enjoyed walking through the forest of her talent as I did. Check out all her wonderful creations in the links for her Etsy and Flickr photos.
