Crafting When We Can Challenges 80 - Name It (personalise your project)

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.

Over at CWWCC 80 we have the

Theme - Name It 
we would like you to personalise your project

our fabulous Sponsor is

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.

You still have a week to join us over at CWWCC with your personalised project.
