Mixed Media Monday - Playful Dolls

I was feeling particularly playful when I created this round robin journal page. I decided to plunk my head on a very graceful and young ballerina's body. This in itself is hilarious to me. It's not that I haven't always wanted to be able to dance gracefully and I certainly love just cutting loose on the dance floor but my foray into formal lessons was a disaster. I had a romantic dream of my Honey and I gliding across a dance floor together so I convinced him that we needed to take ballroom dancing. Well, what I didn't count on was the fact that I had to hand over total control to him! I think we managed to get through about three lessons before we decided that fighting over how high our hands should be held and counting the number of times feet were tromped on was just not that healthy to our relationship. Nonetheless, I love to watch dancing and admire the skill it takes to do so and to make it look effortless. This is my entry for this week's Mixed Media Monday challenge.
