Tis I!! I have been a bad blogger! actually I have been rather busy with the brushes, paints and paper - yes been decorating! Oh its so lovely and I am utterly delighted, really chuffed with myself.
We are going to see "Guys and Dolls" at the Theatre, but I have never seen the film so I bought the DVD, along with "Jersey Boys" which we are going to see in about 3 weeks. Well I have the most fabulous, melodious voice ever (not!!) - but can only remember 1 line of a song and keep singing
(ok screeching) the same line. Diane said to me "Will you promise me one thing......." and I knew
exactly what she was going to say!!! "Dont sing along to the songs when we go to the theatre!" Laughing!!! Mind you I can remember years ago me and Mum went to the ballet, sat in the front row, and it was warm and they were bouncing about on the stage and Mum dropped to sleep with her mouth open!!! The sort of sleeps you go into when you are on a train, and you wake yourself up and try and make out you were not asleep in the first place!! laughing!!!!
So the challenges are really good for this month -
|Anything But Cute Challenge|
First I gessoed bookprint over it, then added a clear texture paste and a white one pushed through a stencil
I fiddled about with it a bit more until I was happy, adding various Viva Decor Inka Golds, diluted and splattered and what not.
Then I glued on the mini canvas and melted some wax discs to give even more texture - thats the silver you can see.
The image is a victorian actress postcard, and I gessoed her first then cut it out. The Deer ears,antlers and nose are from a country magazine.
I think I shall be on the dark side for quite some time yet!!
I entering this into the following challenges:-
Anything But Cute Challenge - Mixed Media makeover
Altered Eclectics - Anything Goes (I always want to say altered electrics!)
Have a great weekend and thank you so much for visiting!
