♥ Madame Butterfly ♥
I’m pretty much finished with my Madame Butterfly painting now. I have a few tiny touch-ups to complete but I’m happy with the results of this chicklette. I used mini brads and felt flowers to top off the painting to give it more of a 2D look. I also went crazy with my Martha Stewart glitters and mini glass beads. I love adding interesting textures to the surfaces of my paintings. When I sketched this out I knew her dress was going to be a yellow “flower.” I got the idea for her belt after I had applied the dress.I think it really adds a lot. She’s now ready for Project Runway!
Election day is finally over and TV and phone calls are safe once again. No more blind phone calls from candidates and no more mud slinging commercials… at least for a while. Enjoy the peace and quite while you can as the 2012 presidential election process begins in January. There will be more pollution for our eyes and ears soon enough.
It’s time again for Whispering Wednesday so here we go!
