I have had this paper mache "coffin" for quite some time thinking I would do something spooky with it for Halloween. I guess this is the year to finally create something out of it !! I love looking at everyone's creations on their blogs and I am always inspired. I spend more time thinking about creating than actually doing something about it !! There is always tomorrow ??? lifeartcollide.blogspot.com has a tutorial for "Secret Book of Sinister Potions" where she textured the book with crumpled tissue paper and glue, plus, cut and added thin strips of corrugated cardboard for more interest. I borrowed her techniques and this is the start of a hopefully creepy creation. My daughter tells me that I don't have a "dark side" !!
I retired in 2005 after dealing blackjack and roulette in Las Vegas casinos for almost 20 years. I have one daughter and one grand-daughter who introduced me to altered art after my retirement. I was born in Iowa and grew up on a farm. I began the Memoirs of a Wildrose blog in the form of letters to my daughter to share information with her about family heirlooms and family history, plus remembrances of today, yesterday and yesteryear ! "Book of Douglas" blog is the story of my late husband, his life as I knew him, and our journey through life together. Ginny's Art blog was created to provide myself a record of my artsy creations.
