Paint Over Collage

Paint over- funny how words reminds you of other phrases isn't it?  When I typed in paint over I immediately thought of sleep over.  Like when our daughters would have friends over, sleep and I do use that word loosely and lots of giggles.  I remember one morning and there were girls all over the place some on the floor, on the sofa.  I don't remember the occasion but that was OK, we never minded at all.  Now I have to be truthful here every once in a while I would mind, not all girls are well mannered and certainly act differently when not at home. 

Alright back to the subject, you know I stray a bit don't you?   As you might or might not remember I am taking a Life Book class at Willow.   This week it was Paint over Collage.  You get this face from a magazine, don't you know these pretty little models would get unhappy to know I did that to their faces?  Sorry girls I enjoyed your ad but now to recycle it.   Then you collage a page and paint over the face and add stamps and stuff. 

My painting over the face project always turns into bye bye pretty model face and hello whatever Annette paints you like.  I lose the face but then I guess I always make it mine?  Now remember we are not suppose to make these gals in correct lengths of arms and legs and bodies, part of the fun of it I do believe. 



I forgot to take the picture before I started painting, but trust me she did not look like this and she did not have this hair.  I added the vintage image to remind me of where we come from in years past and the cute kitty.  The kitty reminds me of Lulu a pretty Tabby we had for 17 years. She was the best cat, would greet all my clients at the door like they had come to visit her.  She would just sit at their feet and always would try to get in their photograph.  


Here she is all duded up.  It is funny how these evolve though.  I was going to put a flower, heart or something like that in her hands and lo and behold a book got there.  It was totally not planned at all.   I added a great saying on my page also.  It is so interesting to see what the other students do and how differently we all make our girls

I don't know but I think you can still sign up for the class it is a year long.  It makes you push yourself which is a good thing I think.  Sometimes we need an inner pushing, not sure if that is a bonafied statement there but bet you get the message.

Once again thanks for stopping by and seeing what is going on in my world today.  xox

    1. Hi Netty, yep I agree the touching and getting the fingers dirty is great. While doing photography for 24 years I missed my pastels and oils and now look gesso, gel medium and all kinds of goodies I am playing with now.
