Thought I would enter this challenge run by ATP Fresh Beginnings as it appealed to me.
Fresh Beginnings made me think of dieting and all those rubbish resolutions we make - and how figure obsessed we are. Well I am not, but thats because I have a gorgeous figure!!! (laughing!)
Slim as a rake and with a bum as pert and cute as Bambi!!!! OK - yes its dropped, yes I more or less drag it on the floor - but what
the hell - in my mind I am fabulouso!
Here is my entry -
BTW - that is not me in the swimsuit - its Miss Roofie!
I used texture paste through a mask depicting a ruler, (cos everything on it is to do with measurements etc). Then I added all the emphemera - numbers, buttons, zips (I made the flower zip), safety pins, coat hanger - all to do with clothes when we feel fat we cannot zip, fasten etc.
Sprayed it with Gold and then waxed it to add some depth. Then stamped on a crackle glaze effect.
Finally I mounted the image which was from an old postcard from MiZ Roofs collection.
I am going to use it as a journal page cos its on heavy watercolour paper stock - and I am not one for pouring out all my angst onto paper, so journaling for me will be an expression within art of my inner feelings.........................(pardon?)
