Just YOU Wait!!!!


Just_you_waitI am still not really feeling well enough to art much – my mouth is still recovering from my visit to the dentist (on 4 hourly pain killers).  Looking for something a bit interesting to do that is not going to require much energy, I have begun researching & gathering images for my new Paper Traders project.  It is a 3 1/2 x 7 inch skinny alphabet book, with a topic of the 1964 film My Fair Lady.  My Fair Lady is one of our children’s favourite childhood films & we still watch it together occasionally on rainy afternoons if we are all together.  It is full of very funny quips & one liners, which is something we all love. The film story is of the incongruious Henry Higgins (played by Rex Harrison), who attempts to ‘re-educate’ a common flower girl – Eliza Doolittle (Audrey Hepburn).  He is a specialist in dialects & he plans to pass her off as aristocracy in order to win a bet with his co star Colonel Pickering – a phonetist from who specialises in Indian dialects.  Not everyone doing the challenge is using a theme, some people are doing individual words & whilst the idea of that appeals to me – I still have my altered dictionary going on the side & some where in Australia – I have a book of quotes on ATC’s (a whole other story) so I thought I’d like to do something like this just for fun.  The challenge is around working up techniques & backgrounds, which I will be posting on my blog, so if anyone would like to join in, you are welcome to.

ps:  Just you Wait is one of Eliza’s famous lines in the song of ‘Just you Wait Henry Higgins’

  1. Keron, I hope by now you are feeling tip-top again. I recently finished an altered book with the theme of My Fair Lady, using images from fashion magazines. It is wildly successful where ever I show it. I know you’ll have fun with this subject. The whole time I worked on mine (I think it was 4 or 5 months) I was humming the songs we know and love so well, and seeing Henry Higgins in my head. Janene

  2. Keron you poor girl, I do hope you are starting to feel better by now. I have had a lovely day with Julia and Noeleen, lot of talking and a bit of creative play. Wishing you a great weekend, and will see you on Monday Love J
