I'm very late with this post because something happened to my eye last week and it was weeping and very sore so I was not able to do my project. Then my printer decided to play up and then the laptop had a wobble. Thankfully everything is OK now. Eye better, I don't know what caused the problem. OH treated me to another printer and the laptop seems to be OK now.

We were given a choice of image and I chose The Artist and as soon as I saw it I knew what I wanted to make with it. I have a friend who's an artist and she would have very curly hair if she didn't keep it short. I'm also sure that in her time she would have painted in a costume like this. I made a hanger for her craft room.
I used a piece of thick grey board and covered it with Tim Holtz distressed inks. I used all the orangy range of colours and built up the colours. I also used my Craftrobo to cut out the letters and stuck on with glue. The image was coloured with my spectrum noir pens and DIs used to create a frame around it. I then mounted it on a pale orange glitter mount. A gold pen was used to go around the letters after I stuck them on. I made a purple spider because it's nearly Halloween and I liked the purple to break up all the orange. A couple of eyelets using my Crop-o-dile, some orange ribbon for a hanger and the project was complete.
