Since I started a new mini over the weekend, I decided I needed to pull out a project that has been hanging around the studio since last fall. I am happy to say I completed it, finally! While I cannot show you the pictures of the project without some distortion for my own protection, I will tell you that it is two 5x7 canvases that I painted, then Modge Podged the background onto, I used sticky back canvas for my subjects, old lace, dyed and Glimmer Misted around the edges, a bat beaded strip of decorative embellishment ribbon, and the inspiration that started it all is the Buzz and Bloom flower strip along the bottom.
Last summer I was looking at this strip in it's raw chipboard like form, wondering how to use it when my genius mother mentioned they reminded her of a certain film I loved as a child and the inspiration hit. The canvases and the flowers sat in my studio, painted and waiting all fall, winter, and spring while I tried to pretend they weren't there.
Sunday, I got to work and finished them this afternoon. They are a pair, meant to hang side by side, and they are also a gift for a dear lady who also loves this film. I am pretty keen on how they turned out and hope that she likes them as much as I do.
Now, I do not have to pretend to ignore this project. It will soon be on its way to a new home, in all its finished glory. Sadly, this is a small step on the list of unfinished projects, but it is a step. I will be back later with photos of the mini album that I completed. The Stickles needed to dry and now it is way dark.
