This was a phrase my Gran used quite a lot when I was younger. She actually refused to walk with me one day when I turned up wearing a green top and a red headscarf!!! It wasn't until I was much older that I realised the connotation...she was worried people would think me a witch as the 2 colours combine to represent the Lady and her Lord of the greenwood. My Gran could have saved me a lot of time if she had explained this aversion to me...I am a witch...always have been...always will be :D
This is the thought that inspired today's journal page, a homage to the Greenman :D
The base layer is the scrummy wrapping paper from Clare's gift yesterday(can't tell you what was in it as Darcy is saving hers til Christmas day :D)
Next layer is modelling paste...
which I spread out and "textured" with a mesh bag from some oranges(more yuletide linkage)
oooooow...texture(though boring to wait on as it takes ages to dry!!!)
WHEN it dried, I sponged on green and brown acrylic paint...
and forgot to take pics of building up of Greenman image, but here are a couple of close-ups :D
