My Support System


Finally! I have finished my art bra for this year's GRAPHIC IV.  I think that it turned out really well.  The title is "My Support System."  So, here's the story behind this bra.  In my former life, I was a book artist.  I thought that a book would be the perfect thing to make into a bra for this event.  After my second breast cancer diagnosis, I received many cards from friends, family and even strangers (thank you, all!).  I kept every card and used them to create the book part of the bra.  Since I had to have my implant removed, I'm flat on my right side.  The book in this bra creates a breast shape.  The rest of the bra is made of paper.  I hope you like it. I do!
