|Stormy: That statue really is great, is it made of cement? It looks heavy!
Dana: The bowling ball art is so much fun ... and if this old blonde who has no creative talent whatsoever can do it, anyone can do it! I saw some on DG that were done with mosaic tiles, pennies glued to them, and mirrored glass and I think someone did one with colored glass chips. I guess the ideas are limitless. A friend of mine gave me two old bowling balls but someone said to ask at a local bowling alley to see if they have any they don't want anymore. When they get cracked or worn out after many years I guess they throw them out. I have one someplace that had a wide crack around the middle and my husband filled the crack for me and sanded it all down ... I never decided what to put on it but was thinking of smashing up an old mirror to use! The ball is out in the shed someplace and I need to find it and get busy. I love the idea of mirrors. And, the bowling balls are so heavy there's less of a chance of them breaking like the glass gazing balls!
Keep us posted if you do one ... and show us a picture!
