so... My entry's a peeking mama. What is it, you ask?
well in all her craftiness, mama sure loves playing a good old game of craft hide-and-go-seek (just made that up Tongue)
Here she is, hiding in a black hole. Her hands are peeking out, as she makes sure you're not there.
...

mama is 100% paper excluding hands., she is fully pixelated, out of HUNDREDS of punched flowers, true to her gardening mind. I used a flower punch. She is made out of card stock, and poster board for the white background. I did not cut the shapes of details out, and added flowers to make it pixel-like, But I built her one by one. This took sooo long, as my hands would get sore, for card stock is thick. Stupid me used photo shop to pixellate, which gave me way more pixels than needed, and I followed that and glued everything on, and only halfway I saw you could use paint to produce an image with bigger pixels, but the picture is still clear. my original plan was to do a life size mama, but I soon realized it was crazy. She's a bit square, only because my posterboard wasn't wide enough. She is all flowers, and her hands are plush. yes, the size of the hole compared to the head is disproportionate, but who cares?
>>She is about the size of two normal human heads together.Each flower is about 1 cm in size.

she is a ceiling hanging, so she is upside down.
for the photos she is hanging to my desk, so I could provide better images.

Haha---so cute!  I thought of using paper punches but my hand immediately hurt at the thought of it (what was it thinking saying sequins were ok? lol)
Great job!
