Owl-lady from a toilet-roll

I saw some amazing art today on Manon's blog post for Paper Saturday.
It made me want to try it instantly. And as you know I have a lot of time to spare I immediately searched the house for an empty roll. Of course I was lucky enough to find one and it was not difficult to find a motif for my little toilet-roll-artwork.

The Owl-lady in her original look. You will have to scroll down a little to see the collaged lady.

And here she is transformed into paper-roll art:

And a close-up:

She has a lot of rough edges and I need to improve my technique, but wonderful to do. Please check out Manon's blog and take a look at the link to the incredible artist, who inspired me to create my little Owl-lady.
