Childhood friends

Sometimes i just need to get my hands dirty creating. When i make an arch i tend to begin with no ideas, nothing. then i stare at the arch and often the shape speaks to me ... ( yeah crazy woman here ) But its true and i begin to build from there ... The childhood friends theme never surfaced until half way through the arch and much paint and tissue and images had then been added.
Anyway here it is


















childhood friends
Drawing, additions to pics and patterns ( pens and acrylics and tiny amount of glitter glue )
kitchen tissue ( white area background left plain )
images ( various )
Stamp & Stazon black ( for the face in background )
scroll (psp tube plus text)
newsprint numbers ( racing page of newspaper lol )
music sheet ( real one from old book then painted in various shades )
Edging and various parts of pic ( metallic rub on colours )

Its lovely June. Its great when something evolves naturally and you don't have to strive really hard for an idea.

I am busy outside up the allotment at the moment, whilst we have rain and cloud - perfect weather for me.
