Long face today...Monday tomorrow and I have to go back to work..I DO want to..and I don't want to..cant wait till I retire now..have the taste for staying at home and just playing..staying in my jammies till whenever..eating at silly o'clock because I can..and having breakfast for lunch and lunch for tea.[.sigh]...dream on girl..you have to work for awhile yet..
Okay...not Monday yet...today is Sunday and there is a new challenge starting up at Lacy Sunshine
and this time we have..WEIRD AND WHIMSICAL.. using darker colours..no pastels.
I must say, this threw me a bit, but once I got going it all came to plan..sort of.
Here is my [and I say this loosely] Canvas..which is really a piece of cardboard cut off an old biscuit box that I bring my grocery shopping home in...
So we started of with Gesso...black and silver paint swished into the middle...added some silver embossed mushrooms which did not stamp too well, but they are there..under the memory box trees cut in black..and squiggled silver and blue fabric paint around the edges..
The came the giant dragonfly, who flies around the dark forest looking fairly ominous..wouldn't like him tangled in my hair.
And out of all that darkness comes this little cutie..Shanna Unicorn Girl ..from the Lacy Sunshine Store ..
Not too scary after all..Shanna is coloured with my Reno Markers and added glossy accents to her eyes..fussy cut her out and popped up on foam squares and hot glued as she kept falling off.
So there we go...our new challenge WEIRD AND WHIMSICAL...hope you can join in..
