Bonanza Projects #1 a ROBOLADY



I didn't come back from the bonanza only with stuff, I came back with a head full, and a camera full of ideas. I'm gonna share these one at a time and here's the first.

This project was inspired by one I saw at The Painted Porch's space at the bonanza


Jenny Mead liked this one so much she bought it. As you can see they have a Halloween theme, made with old tin containers with various objects as hat, arms legs etc.

After getting home I began to think what could I use to make one of my own. I remembered this old plastic powder container, with my name on it, that I had been given by my SIL, and the gears began to turn. But what could I use for a head/face? The idea of using old printers type hit me when I was trying to get to sleep one night, and I just had to get up and start working on it.

Can you see the face? My Dh things the 8 is the eyes, but it's actually the mouth.
The I is the nose and the commas are the eyes.

I began to see that lots of combinations were possible.

I really like the IOU one on the left. I may switch out the one I made for this one.

I call the one on the bottom right, my Picaso face :)

Well the idea for the ROBOLADY wasn't mine, but the face definitely was. I love it when I have an original idea. It happens so seldom.

I think she looks great hanging out with other bits and pieces in my creative room.

The next project is getting "booked" right now.

You're so smart and clever, Margo! Sometimes I think you must have little gears in your head, they must be turning all the time! I love your little junkierobotlookingthingies!

Margo, you are always thinking! I like the Margo gal you made..but , I also like the other combos too. The one with the "A" on top looks like a witch to me!
Can't wait to see your next creation!
