bag of inspiration
After a day of feverish work I have finished the piece made from the stuff Liz sent me. I had painted the cigar box- Notice the blues and greens!- and had spent 2 days moving pieces around and rearranging the layout and not being satisfied with it and just as I was going to sleep the other night it hit me - what was missing - it needed the shriny shape- of course- behind it. Luckily I had just such a thing left from the paperwhimsy shadowbox- and all I had to do with it was cut the bottom lip off and voila! it fit perfectly!
Liz had included a marvellous round calculator thingy that I was realy reluctant to do anything to, but in the end it was just too perfect- so it had to be grunged up.
Liz certainly sent some very interesting pieces- esp what looked like a hood ornament- which became the woman's face at the top- I thought that part turned out esp well. All in all I'm pleased with the way the whole thing turned out- if I do say so myself!
