Finding Face no22 :D

So today's post is a dig at the "Jeremy Clarkson" type male ego. I am going to make some sweeping statements so if they don't apply to you don't worry about them...but if you feel a twinge of recognition, yes, I'm laughing at you!!

Base layer, scraped on acrylics...
added a piece of blueprint paper (thanks Clare :D)... and spotted the words FRAME TYPE "B".
So this put a wickle idea in my otherwise empty girl brain...what would we be like if MEN had created WOMAN?
Well they would definitely have had more than one planning meeting, then gone off into separate workshops and ignored everybody else's ideas :/
SHE would have to have a sturdy metal frame..MEN like making stuff from metal...if you don't want a car taking apart in your drive, don't buy your boys Mechano!
...and SHE wouldn't need a complex "brain" type item...cos women are only interested in flowers and butterflies :S...
She would of course look ABSOLUTELY stunning on the outside...
..but SHE wouldn't be built to last, because MEN would have rushed everything, being in such a hurry to get finished and show off to their mates!
It wouldn't bother them if they had stuck the skin on a bit wonky, let's face it, smooth youthful skin is our hang-up not their's....
In fact, they would be quite happy when some of the paint started peeling off...
and the lovely shiny metal started showing through...

because that would prove SHE was entirely MAN made!!! :D
So SHE is my face no22 for 29 Faces in February :D
But on the side of fairness, if we made men, they would only come in about 4 models, and Sean Connery would be all of them lol :D XXX

  2. ROFL! You've made my morning! I, personally, like Jeremy Clarkson - just ignore his "more ignorant" outbursts and enjoy the humour.
    You've captured a man made woman beautifully and made me laugh.
    Hugs xx

  3. Can my Sean Connery be a four-way hybrid? Sean (of course), Patrick Stewart, Jon Stewart and Johnny Depp?

    Thank you.

    1. no just used gel medium to fix tranfer and blueprint, the rest is drawn on. And you could so d this kind of stuff. Check out some free online classes and don't get caught up in buying expensive supplies. Start by making yourself an art journal to play in :D

  6. Don't you think when the paint starting peeling off they'd trade her in for the latest version with all the latest gadgets?

    Love the thought process that went into this!!
