Another Commentary that flows in a WIP

 I was playing this game with myself.
If I get out my my chair, I have to pickup at least 5 things and put them in their place.
This studio has become a pig sty....without the odor.

That is when I picked up a collection of pretty paper lace doilies that had been on the work counter for longer than I can remember.

I have used them before but I must tell you that I haven't felt too successful in the past.
That is to say, there was just something that I did not like after gluing them down. 
 It happened again. 
I glued them down and then didn't like them. 
You know that I love a challenge. 
Especially the challenges that I unknowingly set up for myself. 
So, I picked up something to scrape with and started scrapping. 
Hey, wait!
I like this deconstructed look. 

It reminded me of a rubber stamp that I made long ago.
So, I found the stamp and began to stamp with it. 
I didn't care that I was not getting a perfect image.
In fact, I like that it was not perfect. 

Next, I added some paint dots and did some shading under the collar of the head scarf. 
I'm sure I will continue with this.
But for now,
it is Enough.

  5. I love how this happened. I am always finding that my distractions or my mistakes make for my best creations.
    I do so wish I could paint though...maybe one of these days I'll get over my stumbling block.
    Great work!
