It all began with a Facebook post from Tina Walker
throwing an idea into cyber space of an
I figured why not ??? why not indeed !!!
When the envelope arrived with the treasures inside I thought
Oh Heck what have I done !!!
After cogitating for quite a while
& procrastinated quite a while longer ..
Then!!! light bulb moment !!!
Gathering all the goodies together I started work
glued the larger piece of fabric onto a piece of board, sprayed a few more colours
stencilled with gesso, sprayed a bit more ..
rubbed 'inka gold' onto the cogs & veiwmaster disk
sprayed muslin skirt with green
rubbed 'inka gold' green onto resin pieces then tipped with gold
cut out angel wings & started putting my angel together.
|butterfly, wings & cogs|
|muslin, cotton fabric & twine|
|resistors, brooch face & metal crown|
from my stash I found the brooch with beautiful face in silver,
rubbed with green & gold & a slight touch of pink on her cheeks,
adding cogs of bronze, gold & silver & gems of aqua,
bending & twisting the resistors &
tying knots into the twine over the skirt completed my playing.
When she was finished I felt she missing something
but what ???
Out in the garden shed found the answer
a frame I had painted many years before.
I washed off the accumulated dust rubbed in more gold
and framed her up
she was now totally complete.
