Tribal me :D

This weeks theme at The Butterfly Effect is "Tribal/Indigenous art", as chosen by Natasha

I am supposed to be doing some self portraits, under the guidance of Amy at Flutterbye, so I thought I'd combine the 2 "Tribal self in cool colours"

The paints I have used are the new Martha Stewart any surface home decoration paints. You can't see from this pic(had to shut the blinds cos sun too bright) but the paints are all pearlescent and metallicy shiny. Colours used wolf gray/jetstream/aqua/surf. The garland is made using MS stencil that came with paints :D
Not sure yet if I want to add "Stuff" to give a more dimensional piece, we'll have to see :D
