Come Fly With Me…

That’s this week’s artistic prompt from MMM this Monday. The canvas painted by Diane is so beautiful and she used a brilliant gel transfer too, so it’s altogether my favourite piece of work by her so far!

I have made a fantasy triple-domino, butterfly doll which I’m entering this week. It didn’t turn out quite how I’d visualised it, but I have it hanging over the mantlepiece at home and it’s very striking – sort of like a long-tailed Lady Moth!!

I used the 3 different sizes of bamboo dominos with corresponding Deco Ladies images from Ten Two Studios, a lot of wire and beads and a huge leap of faith! I did ask Lisa whether she thought the wings should be bigger, to which she replied that it is a case of Designer’s choice! Very tactful and non-committal – *grins*

Although this was a one-off, I really think there might be a ‘family’ in the future!! 🙂

  1. Rosie, I love your gypsy moth “thingie” ! It’s so unique and beautifully done. Makes me want to play with bamboo tiles. APPLAUSE!

    Thanks for your kind comment on my flying “piece”, and your welcoming attitude toward digital art! For those of us with limited space for arts and crafts, digital art is a joyful endeavor. My blog has given me an opportunity to appreciate and enjoy all sorts of art,–stamping, fabric, collage, oil, acrylic, watercolor, and gluebook; and to come to know the most generous and talented bloggers of like minds.

  13. Rosie, you do the most remarkable, creative entries!!! This triple domino bug is just wonderful and show so much ingenuity. I love it and I would hang it over my fireplace, for sure. I like the proportions, i.e. the short wings, but I think he might have trouble getting off the ground in RL. But then he is a fantasy bug, so anything goes. Right?
