Hello Everyone and a big thank you for visiting my blog.
I am sure some of you are here to see what the new theme is for the challenge at Try it on Tuesday so I won't keep you guessing any longer. It is 'Hot and Wild'. I bet you will have lots of ideas but if you haven't then do pop along to TIOT and see what all the team have made for this challenge. You made need to wear sunglasses.
I decided to go down the African route and made this large piece that is now hung on my craft room wall to frighten away unwanted visitors. It all started when I made some paper beads. The African women make them to sell to help feed their families. Lots of tutorials online if you want to make any. I did my own designs.
I used an A4 sheet of gloss photo paper and alcohol inks for the hot colours on the background and I added some African tattoo designs. The mask I copied from a picture on geographic page. It is backed with a piece of animal print card that Valerie sent to me and I think it makes the eyes and mouth look really scary. This was all added to a canvas that I painted with brown emulsion and dots of an orange emulsion to make it look like animal fur(well it does to me ?)
Hope you will join in with us and enjoy being Wild and Hot. Always wonderful to visit your blogs and see what you make..
Love Chrissie xx
