Here are the first two of my gypsy pages for Artistic Journey Swap, I have 8 to make for other people, but I am also making some extra ones for myself so that I have some to keep & I can explore the idea a bit more. The first one is made from one of the random coloured backgrounds from a few nights ago & is called ‘Predict’, the second one, called ‘Marche Des Tambours’ which was the a perfect title I found on some music I came across in my stash. I painted the background for this one especially to match the image colours. I have used REAL old Italian money on Predict….. it is from my special friend who’s ‘heart is also in Rome’ Paola. Paola actually lives in Rome…. she teases me regularly about her passing the Colusseum twice a day to & from work, & that she has seen under ground Etruscan mosaic friezes…..you know, and EVERYDAY things like that…… LOL!!! Thank you Sweet! I have rubbed it over with antiquing wax to give it a bit of lustre & it looks lovely in the flesh.
