Wondering at the reason this creation also has “why” stamped on it in big red letters? Me too! I have no idea. I guess it seemed like the right thing to do. Now it seems like the stupid thing to do. But once the deed is done, as they say …
I think this “writing on the wall” piece is such crap that I wouldn’t usually show it to you … but I adore the pen nib in the bottle with the tiny ink label! And, the Dresden edging. And the background. I guess I like all of the individual elements, just not the way I’ve put them together!
On to the blue piece. Here we’ve got a lovely tissue wrap background, inked in blues and stamped with a tree. My favorite bit on this ATC is the fence.
Do you remember the gothic arch charm I posted? Believe it or not I used one of the throw-away bits from that charm to stamp/emboss and attach as fence posts!
Honestly I think that fence is freaking brilliant!
Finally, my last wood ATC … until I have time to create another handful … is a departure from my usual grungy stuff.
I mean, if Marilyn still seems desirable while she’s holding a lit cigarette between two fingers, swiping a third finger across a colored lip, dazedly glaring at the camera from her uncomfortably reclined position … the rest of us can’t look too bad when we’re really, genuinely working what Mother Nature gave us. Right?
Totally … we’ve *got* it girls!
I’m also hoping that I haven’t used that Marilyn image illegally. I spend two hours last night scouring the internet trying to figure out where I first found it, the name of the photographer, the publisher … anything that would reveal if this is a copyrighted or public domain image.
All I could find was a Web site run by someone who seemed to think they are “outing” Marilyn as a smoker. Congratulations Sherlock. You broke the case!
