Green Man 2

When I get ideas in my head I get a bit intense and I wanted to think of another interpretation of the green man without a mask. So last night, torch out, outside in the green bin,(appropriate colour) rooting round for Sunday colour supplements. Hey Presto, found a suitable candidate for green man!!

Glued him into a journal page and left him until tonight.
No plans as to how to do this but just got back to him tonight and threw some fresco paint on him, Limelight, Chocolate Pudding, London bus, Smoked Paprika and Hey Pesto. Actually mixed paint together tonight !! Also tore some book paper and brown paper leaves and added to the mix.

Next I was going to add stamped and cut papers using similar to last night but suddenly thought about my Ellen Vargo stamps. Bingo, quicker and I hoped different….so I stamped a mixture using versa mark coffee, olive and black archival. With hindsight should have left out the black….too dominant.
So here is Green man number 2. Don't have nightmares, sleep well!!

  5. Whew! Hazel, he does remind me of those traditional Green Men that are a bit scary! He is terrific though, a triumph! You certainly went above and beyond with this one! I love love love the way you recycled and how you transformed that image from the colour supplement! I've said it before and I'll say it again, you're a very talented lady, Hazel. I really appreciate how wholeheartedly and brilliantly you've played along this week. Many many thanks for sharing your fabulous creativity! Julie Annxxx
