Barbie follows her Dream by 

Long time ago I made some ballet costumes for my little niece, she loves ballet and dance like I do.

My own copy of a fake Barbie was model. After finishing the tutu’s and other ballet gear, sewing, knitting, crochetting plus decorating, I made some photographs with my old analoque Minolta.

Last month I was busy to scan in some old photographs of my dressed puppets collection, there was the instant idea of creating a collage of Barbie’s dream.

“Never stop dreaming, they can become true!”

Life is all about creativity
The desire is to go beyond the Normal way of Living.
It’s all about the Xtra things that life can offer you.
Life is full of little wonders like new languages, colours, energies and feelings.
Search for them and keep these little treasures in your Heart.
Would like to share it with you…exchange and be inspired.
You’re invited and welcome to visit my portfolio.
