"Put a Boat on It"

When Connie set up this blog hop, she stated that our projects should have a boat on it - mine does but it's "way different" than the traditional concept of a boat project.  For several months I have been making straw people for a display at our local library.  These have been stamped people such as Julie Nutting or Dyan Reaveley dolls and the occasional story book character.  This is the case for today's project -
Marie Antoinette straw person.

I colored her with a combination of colored pencils and alcohol-based markers, fussy cut her out, and mounted her onto a decorative straw.  She and the other straw people I've made will serve as a decorative centerpiece for a summer reading display.

 Up next is MIRANDA

Here's our line up in case you get lost.
