Practice makes…

Me better than I was before!!! I love image transfers, I really do. I am not brilliant at them – yet, but I keep doing them because I get such a kick out of them. My friend Jan came to visit last year while she was holidaying near-ish to us. She brought me some weird and wonderful things like a painted egg, some basketware, wooden leaf shapes… the list goes on. My creative mates do that you know, they send me anything they bought and haven’t used because they really don’t remember why they got it in the first place and can’t think what to do with it!!

Anyway, in the hope of finding somewhere new to live (soon?), I am constantly sorting through my stash, reorganising and decluttering. I came across two clay tiles Jan gave me last year and this is how they turned out: The first one is like a “rhapsody in blue” – French text, blue images from Ten Two Studios Little Blue Things for Make It Mondays ‘Travel’ theme.

And the back…

Now this second one also uses images from the Little Things collage sheets – Children and Men! I love the look of shock/horror on this little girl’s face so I gave her wings – as if she’s suddenly realised she’s an angel? I know, wicked, aren’t I? She’s for Mixed Media Monday – again the background is French text (also available from Ten Two Studios)…

And the gent on the back with his flowers and pink fish is totally irresistible!! My DH has just such a sense of humour… and he’s an angler to boot!!

So having put matching wire loops on these two, I shall now have some very interesting  jewellery to wear to the Art Exhibition at the weekend!! 😉
