Change in plans tonight. The little town where I had planned to go has an emergency tornado warning happening. A twister touched down just north and word is, there are more coming.
SO, I'll stay home instead.
I've done a couple of ATC's for my favorite challenge in the whole wide world, The Order of the Opus Gluei .
(Holy poo, the news is on behind me and I am DEFINITELY not going out of town tonight!)
We've been asked to use any little bits and pieces of ephemera that we may have lying around to make something fun. I've had this picture of an Edgar Degas painting ever since I cut it out of the newspaper to remind myself I wanted to go to the Degas Exhibit at the museum. I think this counts as ephemera. I painted it with gel medium and then added some German Scrap, and a couple of rub-ons. And I had EXACTLY the frame for it. Looks just like it should be in a museum, doesn't it? Well, rest assured, it IS. In the museum at my house.
The second thing I made ("thing" is such a dorky word) includes another piece of ephemera I tore out of the newspaper one day. it's an ad for "Pop" as you can tell. I thought it looked kind of retro. I attached it to the background (some paper from somewhere) with more gel medium, and then covered it with a piece of acrylic that I ran through the laminator at work with some cut-up saran wrap. I thought it made it look kind of "cool" As in an icebox. Hence, the word "cool". Don't lick it, your tongue may get stuck. And THAT would look REALLY silly.
Fun With Ephemera for the Opus Gluei challenge #65.
Go over there. Hurry. You have time to play. Well, actually, this site is so cool, you can play whenever you want, however you want. they just give you the inspiration. Go on. You'd be a fool not to.
