Mother of the Bride, STILL a fascinating creature

I’ve gone and done it, got my fascinator for the wedding!  Not long now.  Apparently there are no hard and fast rules how to wear it, which is just as well as I havn’t got a clue!  The one I got has a comb attached to it.  I refuse to wear hairbands at my ageContinue reading “Mother of the Bride, STILL a fascinating creature”

Dark days Box me in and Drive me round the Pole

Some days are depressing, and this has been one of them.  Only I can’t quite put my finger on WHY it has been depressing.  I guess some days are naturally dark, like some are light.  Perhaps its like this in the North Pole with the short days (perhaps I’m going round the pole, or roundContinue reading “Dark days Box me in and Drive me round the Pole”

Altered art book: page 21 continued

Continuing page 21 of my altered art book: ” She’d be laid out in her coffin, pink satin it’d be with blue trimmings to go with her make-up.” She sounds like the Late Barbera Cartland doesn’t she.  It seems the dead make a great effort to look their best (well, the undertaker does).  But whatContinue reading “Altered art book: page 21 continued”

page21 Continuing with my altered art book, I have now reached page 21.  I am still doing pages whose words were chosen a long time ago and for a particular reason.Though those original reasons are now lost, I am just going by what suggests itself to me, and I shall see what happens.  I chose quite a lotContinue reading “Altered art book: page 21 Dark Days in the Coffin”

Altered art book: page 20 continued again

Continuing with page 20 in my altered art book.  ‘The phrase ‘Little bastard’ were Googled (because I hadn’t got a clue why I had chosen them, it was ages ago…)  This yielded the interesting fact that James Dean’s car was called this!  Dean of course is an icon, a rebel without a cause who diedContinue reading “Altered art book: page 20 continued again”

Altered art book: page 20 continued

  Method used for this page was watercolour, then ink was inscribed (ok, then scribbled…)  I actually used a rubber stamp on this page, a leaf one.  I used some handmade paper, torn at the bottom of the page.  Ribbon was used and some plastic shapes embellished.  I love the colours used on this page.
