Can't explain why I get so excited but heart is going like the clappers without aerobics.
I galloped off to my stash of boxes etc after I had seen Jo's fabulous birdhouse creation and there was this papiermache pig that had been waiting for attention for a couple of years.
I set to with watered down fresco paint after applying gesso and rubbed with baby wipes and applied more paint until I was happy with the base. I used Chocolate Pudding, Mocha Mousse, Very Berry and Blood Orange. Forgot to mention that between layers I drew hearts with my grandsons wax crayons.
I stamped some lips on tissue, coloured with blood orange, applied to pig and glazed them. I stamped some of Darcy's hearts and cut out assorted tissue hearts. Also as I was getting brave after wine I started to doodle with my new felt tips. Then the trusty Treasure Gold was dry brushed on. Spanish Topaz and Ruby.
I didn't want to spoil my pig by giving it a face. Sometimes it imposes a character that you don't want, so I found a pair of Wendy Vecchi lips, Blood Oranged them, added TG and made a pair of eyelashes from Crunchy Wax Kraft Paper.
Next I cut out hearts from Grunge Paper, painted with Blood Orange, stamped with Darcy's stamps and fried in the UTEE. I attached a bit of broken necklace so that they will dangle.
Finally, I cut some hessian, printed with Darcy's hearts on Crunchy Wax Paper and assembled my shining pig. Deliriously happy. Might not be the tastiest pig in the world or the most tasteful pig in the world but its MY lurve pig and I love her!!
Just goes to show that not all the loonies are locked up yet.
