This is my first challenge entry ever! Lichtenstein's Girl with Hair Ribbon. I did the benday dots with pompoms! The first image used to be sideways, and I figured out how to fix it in Craftster's photo hosting, but now it's squished  Undecided



The canvas is really big (about 5 feet tall), and the pom poms are 5mm.

As requested, here's some closeups of the pompoms to show the texture. First the eye:



Now the lips:



And EXTREME CLOSE UP to show texture the best (again the lips):



And one more pic of the whole shebang:



I'm so proud of it! It's probably going up in the bedroom  Grin

zomg, spectacularly brilliant use of pom-poms -- but as Quinn said, the texture gets completely lost in the photo. 

I'd love to see a closeup!  More pics!

Yay, figured out how to flip the image (although now it's kinda squished  Undecided  I will take some closeup pics and add them so you can see the pompomy texture! I was just in a hurry to get it up before the deadline.

I appreciate your votes!

I wish I would have seen this before voting closed!  Cry
This is gorgeous - I couldn't believe it was pompoms until I saw the close-ups showing the texture. 
This indeed "rocks"!

such a great idea! I can't believe you used pom poms, it must've been tedious gluing all of those individual dots!
