Dragonsdream TIO

"Eternal Goddess - think woman, earth colours, ancient Goddess figure, angelic" - that was the requirement for TIO last week ........ had this all in my mind to do when wham bang flat on my back ....... but mojos getting back into gear and I'm just in time, so here it is.

Again I've drawn inspiration from the garden, this time one of the statue type things that lurke in our beds and border. I've always loved this one and she epitomises to me the set theme this week ........ just hope she's not a bit risque with her boobs on show on my little part of the www.

My picture of her was run off onto plain white cardstock and then I messed about with some Tim Holz inks, versamark and gold embossing powder, highlighting bits of her hair and image. The tag itself was also treated to some more messing about with the same products plus lots of water, then overstamped with Stampendous N154 and Hobby Art GR13411 - Shakespeare Sonnet which I though was quite apt for my Goddess. The butterfly came on the wrapping of a birthday pressie and I just added some wire antenna ........ I got some odd looks (well odder than usual) when I took the butterfly off the wrapping and instinctively started to fondle it's wings into shape ........ doesn't everyone ?

That's all for today folks, going to try to get round a few more of your blogs and make up for lost time.

stunning creation brenda, I'm thinking of you I too had dental problem but was so luck it worked out for me, a place near liverpool specialises in implants and cosmetic dentistry and did not cost the earth. I really hope you find something. janex

This is stunning Brenda. Is it a photo of your statue, it looks 3D? I had to smile at your lady's delicate bits, I have one of those statues in my garden too but a fern covers her modesty!!!

Hi Brenda, this is a proper work of art it's gorgeous. I too thought the lady was 3d her 'bits' really stand out lol... I meant her nose and mouth of course! Totally outstanding how you've created the illusion. It's just brilliant. I also wanted to answer your question too... yes Ive got MS and it's so good to see you back so soon but I hope you're not overdoing it!!!

Hi Brenda

I'm getting a bit worried about you!! Over the last couple of days your blog has mentions "your drawers" and now "boobs". You need to be careful or your blog will end up with a "censored sticker" slapped on it. LOL!!

Anyway, back to your creation. Really, really beautiful - what more can I say.

.. .. and no you are not the only one who would have rescued that lovely butterfly .. .. I would have done exactly the same.

My DIL even keeps the wrappers off the sweets to use on her cards. (Her cards sometimes still smell of mint or chocolate when you get them).

Great to have you back matie - don't work too hard.

Love Jules xx
