I am over yesterday’s rant – thanks for your support on that one! BUT NO, my phone situation is NOT resolved – I just couldn’t face another 2 – 3 hour battle on the phone today. I guess the thing that I was left with was wondering why I felt that I had to justify to some idiot stranger that me being at home & not working is just a temporary situation – that I am actually an interior designer & I will be back in the workforce soon – so YES – I AM a worthwhile member of society! Silly me. But, oh have I had fun today – basking in luscious Golden Heavy Bodied Acrylic ‘Iridescent Gold’ – YUM – it is almost edible! Due to the scanning process, you don’t see much of the detail in this piece. The border is created from a vintage bible with verses about angels…. which have a fine coat of gold to make them shimmer – but transluscent enough that you can still read the text if you want to. The wings are stamped up with Brilliance Pearlescent Beige & the centre section is painted gold, then has Ranger Crackle Paint applied over the top. The angel’s garment is stamped with Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink. The face is purposefully a little on the pasty side, & a little chalky looking, in an attempt to create the feel of an old ‘peeling’ icon piece.
