If you happened to catch yesterday's post you know there was a painting I purchased here which was weighing on my mind. And if you've spent any time around here you know two other things about me. I worship (I mean love) glitter and I often times cannot leave something in the same state in which I found it!
So earlier this week I got the urge to create for a show coming up and headed into the garage where I knew I had two pictures from an auction several months back. They were bad. I knew they were bad but the frames had potential and I was ready to do some magic similar to the one here and/or here.
Off I trotted and grabbed one off the shelf. Brought it inside, flipped it over and lo and behold...
There it was. The VERY SAME IMAGE. Ha. I am not crazy (well that's actually an issue for another moment) and of course the GW painting seemed familiar. Now this is obviously not a real painting and has spent a long time cooped up in a house. It was surely whiter when it began life but I firmly believe these are salvageable.
So I ever so happily dug out my glitter, stash of vintage jewelry and lace bits to doll these ladies up. Voila!
What do you think? Glittered flowers on her hat and a brooch on her collar. It's almost done. I thought it was done but something else kept nagging me. So this afternoon I'm adding lace to her skirt and then sticking a price tag on her. Because if I don't price it I'll keep tinkering and NEVER be done. Linking to: Tuesdays Treasures
