Altered Clothespin Dancer

I altered a wooden clip-type clothespin with a beautiful dancer image from Gecko Galz. The dancer is from the Girls of the Moulin Rouge collage sheet. I added some color to her costume with chalks. I cut off her paper plume and gave her a real feather instead. I placed a clear glass marble over her face to magnify her beauty. The project was easy and fun to make.

I am entering this clothespin clip in the following challenges:

Gecko Galz Yahoo Group - under glass
Through the Craftroom Door - #44 anything goes
Dream Valley - #45 anything goes
Divas by Design - #61 anything goes
Penny's Paper Crafty - #102 anything goes
Creative Moments - #4 anything goes
Craft Punked - #46 anything goes
Digi Galore - altered item

Please take a peek at the sites I have listed above. The design team members have created some beautiful artwork for their respective challenge sites.
