Art Challenge... and more..

Time for another Art Challenge over at "Mind Wide Open" (*see left hand side bar of blog for link to this fun art challenge blog)
This month's theme was the word "Boo"
This is the image that we were given to create something from.
Below is the entry that I created. I decided to make the image look like a woman attending a Halloween Masquerade Ball.

So I created a dimensional witch hat..stuffed the inside of the hat with crepe paper, then accented with tiny shiny plastic "jewels" Made a black felt mask ..accented it with "jewels".

Then created a "skirt" from orange organza and accented with black tulle.Top was black tulle also.-----------------------
Really had fun with it.
I recently was involved with a barter online where I traded out for some lovely vintage peacock feather fans. I received 3 feather fans, one was in a little bit of banged up I managed to salvage quite a few of the feathers. The other 2 fans were in great shape and will be framed against a lace background.

The fan that I took apart..I will use the feathers to frame a picture /fashion plate type image/ of a woman holding a peacock feather fan..and her dress is made of peacock feather..anyhow..I'll use the real peacock feathers to frame around the canvas image of the woman.

I hope to work on that sometime this coming week.
On a different note...
I am glad that some of you were able to use the info about beginning blogging. Thank you for your comments..I'm always happy to help when/where I can.
Here's wishing you all a lovely evening.
Thanks for stopping by!
