Random, Mayhem and Chaos...

3 words close to my heart during any school break, as they totally describe the world around me...but wouldn't life be boring without them :D
As I said in my last post , sorry for not being around much lately, but I have been I thought I'd do a quick catch up(still not sure if there is other stuff I haven't blogged yet :/ )
My bosom buddy asked if I could help a bit with a local theatre group a couple of weeks ago, painting scenery and stuff...they rent backdrops, but wanted a few bit's and pieces for extra decor.
This is "The Duchess" 20x 30 on hardboard(I know it looks a bit stark, but it is a cameo appearance piece and has to be seen in the back rows)

Family coat of arms + motto x 2 . Cut from thick grey board 20x20 ish (instructions...paint what you think best!!! So being wary of copyright I just made one up, though the motto is specific to the play)

while waiting for paint to dry (as you do) I decided to print off some of my own art as little business cards...but the printer didn't want I painted straight onto the die cut cards instead...

cut some tiny make-up sponges to make little stamps...

popped the cards out when dry...

doodled around stamped images...

used white Poska paint pen to add a little more detail and finished with a layer of iridescent acrylic :D
(already lost them amongst the chaos which is my craft room at the moment)

so I made some postcard ones too :D

And finally for now, the painting which I actually "sold" last week to a lovely lady who has ordered a larger piece (get me!...)

"Petals at Dawn"

named from a song lyric by Lorreena McKinnet "Prayers rose, softly, petals at dawn..."
As it is Tuesday already!!! I should be entering one of these for Rita's "A Piece a Week" challenge, and as she was the latest to be worked on I will choose "The Duchess" :D
Happy Holidays(again) :D XXX

    Hugs xx

  2. Wow! working on the theater scenery sounds so exciting. :) Love what you've done!

  3. Randomly magnificent! It sounds like you are having a world of fun, so by all means stay away from your cyber-home for a bit.

    And how the hell do you manage to put expressions on something without a face? I swear "Petals at Dawn" looks deep in thought!

  4. Gina, you busy girl! Thanks for sharing all your goodies! I agree with Magaly, Petals At Dawn, looks deep in thought! I think I should get you to make me some business cards! LOL! Thanks for coming by my blog ;o) Big Hugs ;o)

  5. Backdrops are always fun, mostly because of the people involved and you've done a wonderful job. Congrats on selling a painting YEAH! Love your idea for business cards. xodonna

  6. You've been really creative. Fabulous pieces.
