Altered Torso



A while back I bought a couple of female torsos from a Craft shop in Klerksdorp. I love the look of the 1st 1 I did using scraps of paper.This time I decided to cover the torso with denim.

I used an old pair of hubby's jeans to cover the torso & to glue it down I used a glue gun. To decorate I used foam roses, old belt buckle, lace, old necklace, pearls & thin belts.



Thanks for looking :)
