I finally finished my project for Karla & Beth's online workshop,
I was blown away by their banner!
Art History was one of my favorite courses & I'm fascinated by arch types. The Gothic & Moorish being my favorite.
I took certain 'liberties' with the project by turning the banner into a triptych. It's a ghoulish family portrait.
I was watching Rosemary's Baby last night & the plot greatly influenced my piece.
I'm thinking the parents wish to remain a mystery, masking their faces.
But the heir, the dark prince, stands proud & tall.
Maybe on second thought the parents are hiding from him.
After all, Catboat was 'trouble'.
I used several images from Karla & Beth's workshop, & even worked the waxed paper into my center arch. I created hinges to allow the piece to stand.
I can't wait to make Beth's burlap bag, & the other projects.
All of the resources, demonstration videos & images they provide makes each project a pleasure to work on.
I'm linking up to Debra's blog party,
Vintage Inspiration Friday today.
One of my biggest inspirations is..........
Matriarch of the Hicks-Bolton empire!
The photos in my last post are evidence of the influence her style has in my home.
Why there is not a book on the genius of this family is beyond me!
These pictures are all taken from ME Home Companion 12 years ago!
Rose was certainly a pioneer.
Look at her all white decor, the little assemblages gathered from precious treasures.
Layered empty frames.
I gasped when I saw her hang ironstone backwards, I also credit her with showing me the beauty in a crackled stained piece of china.
Beauty in imperfection.
So thank you Debra & Miss Rose for a very inspiring look back!
