Done on a 4 x 4, I started out with an image from an old French postcard I have in my stash and went from there. Background is a fragment of a torn dictionary page and some old printed paper; I added some stripes with colored pencils and pastel chalk, torn netting and a small tag. Then I added some twisted colored fibers, a turquoise headed brad, a stamp from Italy, and some gem swirls. Distress inks and Sakura pens used for accents.
I'm not sure when I will post again, because my studio is going to be undergoing a major reorganization. With the help of one of the very friendly staff at The Container Store, I designed a drawer storage unit which I sincerely hope will help me tame the Messy Monster! I'm not foolish enough to think it will always stay neat and tidy up here (BOORRRING!) but I hope at least it will cut down on my tripping over things as I go in and out, and I won't "lose" things so quickly. One can always hope!! This may be done slowly, depending on my energy level and my family's help.
AND....... my daughter posted this on Facebook, and as most of my readers know I am a big fan of Steampunk. THIS IS GRAND!!!
