For the Three Muses “Victorian” challenge this week, I created this page in my altered Girls’ Book!
And Queen Victoria wasn’t amused, was she? The Victorian era was probably the most mutable in our history – complete with double standards, the Industrial Revolution and Victoria & Albert, (also my favourite museum!!)… I used brown and black acrylic paints scraped across the page for the background, and silver paint to represent steel (through the sequin waste). I think it has a bit of shock value, don’t you? Well, I hope so, because I also want to use it for Hels’ Sunday Stampers “Paint it black” theme… I’ve used my MaVinci latin text stamp liberally Hels, and also my RV barbwire too!
Less demanding, the Theme Thursday Dark, Gothic and/or Halloween challenge… used to be my fave time of the year, but not really these days *yawns*! All images used on these altered game pieces (and the collage), are from Ten Two Studios – Lisa has a very dark section… 😉
Doesn’t the application of aged mahogany distress ink round the tiles look a bit like blood??? *grins* I also created a rather outrageous mail art piece which will be on its way to London tomorrow – did a swap with Jackie aka Jester Crafts! So, I won’t show you that one till she has received it. 😉
