Altered Metal With Paint

And I have made a self portrait:
I've used the technique on my lovely body. 
In it's former life it was an earring.
The arms are by Rian of Freubel, the legs and my lovely head are by Julia of Cemerony, the "artful Me' quote is by Lisa's Altered Art and the rest of it?  Well it's from my humungeous stash of course.  I had to tell you that?
She looks exactly like me, dontcha think?
Well, yes, her eyelashses are longer.
 Much, much longer.
I wear that kind of skirt too.  Every day.  To work.
Belly dancing music follows me everywhere I go.
Are you still with me?
Well have a lovely day then.
Unless of course, you're making other plans.

  8. Electra, I LOVE THIS! What a wonderful and perfectly brilliant way to approach the altered metal challenge! Girl, you have the best imagination and such a great eye for color and composition, not to mention a world class sense of humor.
