Venetian Invitation!

Here is another attempt at 'Altered Art'.

Was mooching about and found a couple of CD's.. there may have been something really important on them but I didn't bother to check!! The flocked silver and black background paper was saved from my Christmas crackers as was the black velvety paper which is behind the silver hanging clip and pink brad. (I know crafters relatives think we're all mad saving scraps...but you see somethimes we DO actually use them!!). I sculpted the mask from Fimo (what else!) and painted it with pink acrylic paint, then covered a piece of wood with sticky ribbon and added some gems and fibres. Not another Fimo face, I hear you say...but I only have two more left from the first batch I made so you mightn't see any more of them for a while!! (But I'm not promising!!) Used some black brocade for the headband and added feathers and pearls. My face painting could be better but I actually think she has a bit of a 'morning after a party' look with her mascara having run!!!


  1. I like it, Viv, and good for you for using things up. I need to do more of that myself.

  2. Love it Viv, a great idea!
