Off With Her Head


Background coloured with various shades of green and blue fresco paints through lots of different stencils until I was happy with what I had. The main LP image was stamped onto the tag and also onto a separate piece of card. Coloured with tango, submarine and zesty zing fresco paints as they are translucent so I could just paint directly over the top of the stamped image. Cut the image out and placed it over the top of the image on the tag. Added some words and a bit of doodling. Oh and obviously I chopped off her head and gave it back to her to hold in her arms.

Oh, that's a bit macabre! But I do like it! I love the use of colour and the great interpretation of Lynne Perrella's image. A really great and original tag. Julie Ann xx

That's a great solution if the tag you are using is too short for the image LOL. Just kidding; I like this rich coloured tag and Marie Antoinette looks great when she looses her head.

Hi I'm Sam, 43, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 23 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 6 years and 7 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
