The other morning at 5:30 am, the alarm went off. It's a station from Canada that plays classic rock. Well, sometimes they are talking and it's always interesting to hear someone else's local news 'cause I typically have no clue what they are talking about.
Anyhow, the tunes are good.
They were playing Don't Stop Thinking About Tomorrow by Fleetwood Mac. Have always loved that song.
Of course THE MAN is the alarm clock clicker so I did not get to finish hearing the song. Had to google it later.
Thought I needed to use some of the song lyrics on my next piece for the Onion (aka Sue) and Quirks (aka Lisa) Challenge.
Here is what I started with:
Before you get all crazy that I messed with a real silver platter, I assure you this is plated (pun intended) AND I had to sand green rust off the bottom of it. Flowers are hiding the rust bubbles!
So, now the rust bubbles are hid by gesso and five trillion coats of various shades of paint and & dripped alcohol ink. Fun times. Kept applying paint & ink until I was happy. Which means it took me all week. ;-)
Since the Onion (aka Sue) and Quirks (aka Lisa) Challenge involves making your own stencil, I opted to cut "tomorrow" out on my Silly.
Here is my stencil after using plaster. The center part of the circle did not stay put, but I think it looks like a moon sorta....
Once it was dry, added a bridge inked up in chocolate from Prima (thanks Helen!), trees, cattails, and birds cut from my Silly. They were modge podged down with Shimmer Modge Podge.
Can see a bit of the shimmer here....
These have been great projects to get Mojo back flowing! My "thinking about tomorrow" idea is what one might do if you are stuck in a creative rut!
Thanks Onion (aka Sue) and Quirks (aka Lisa) for having me! Can't wait to see what you made!
Happy Crafting this weekend!
