Remember my post a while ago where I told the story of overflowing the sink at work? The one in which I tried to make glue skins with Elmer's because I was trying to save money and not use Golden's Gel medium. And how by accident I got some cool water logged images out of it?? Ok nobody cares anyway, so I'll just get on with it. teehee. The first ATC I made using one of the resulting images from said debacle has a woman's fading beauty as the subject. Personally I am fascinated with this subject. Becoming middle aged for me has been really difficult. My head seriously still thinks I am young, cool and thin. I pass a window and go, who is that old broad and why is she wearing "comfortable" shoes??? Then I recognize my hair and think, Oh shit, why did I ever give up drugs and alcohol??? Just kidding. I haven't given them up. Just kidding again. So, I'll just end this diatribe with one more OVERSHARE: if I were on one of those Survivor type shows, the ONE thing I would HAVE to take? TWEEZERS. Nuff said. You know exactly what I mean, don't even try to deny it.
The fabric flower is courtesy of Robin, awesome blogger babe. Thanks for the inspiration! My last creation of the weekend uses a thought paraphrased from Jennifer Egan's book " Look At Me". It reads in total: " Mercifully, my flask was still full of tequila. I shoved it in my purse and gulped a little in the elevator, distressed to find that Despair had followed me there and was planning to chaperon me through the evening-or perhaps the rest of my life". Now how awesome is that?
