for this, the last week of torso-shaped ATC's, the theme at something completely different is "...OF THE SEA". of course this was verrrrrry easy indeed because as soon as you think "torso" and "sea" you pretty much immediately come up with only one mental picture, right??!?!?!
despite the inarguable beauty and perfection of both my argument and the image in question, i can forsee being disqualified on the grounds that neither googling nor drooling can fairly be counted as artistic pursuits; so just to be safe i made a vintagey/collaged torso, as well. sorry daniel, you were my first choice, though, obviously! :)
(vintage: illustrations & poem from two children's books, accounting card (that YES, did really have "tulip coral" typed on it!), shell ribbon; prima flower; ranger distress ink; wired pearls from michaels; adhesives: hot glue, gluedots & uhu gluestick)
and now i am off to pack one torso from each week of august and send them to the lovely carol for the big swap!!! tomorrow being the first friday of september, there will be a whole new format at SCD...can't wait to see what is next!
