The challenge theme this week is
How twisted can you get? We want to see your dark or naughty side come out to play. There's no need to hide or be squeamish, we are all freaks here...at least that's what those in The Land of Magnolia say about us.
I wear my Freak Show Badge with pride and so should you (click this linkto get your own freak show button)! Heck, art is art. I sometimes make gruesome things, but that doesn't make me a mass murderer or an unfeeling person. I like to be diverse in my creative process. My mates make alternative works as well. Come on, dive in and have some fun! Save the pretty pretty for those other challenges. We like it gritty around here...and TWISTED!
Now this might not be gruesome to some, cutting up someone's artwork might be considered wrong. It was necessary for my bit of twisted fun.
This is my project lying flat - just so you get the idea
And this is it hanging up.
Coloured with promarkers then scanned and printed. 6 times for one direction and six flipped images.
Then came the dismembering and gluing together of all the layers. The two sides were stuck together with a wire between so that they could be strung together. These were then dipped in UTEE before assembling using jewellers thread with some cog charms between the sections. The 'copter piece is made from 2 small TH gear die cuts, heat embossed with distress embossing powder. Triangles of a pearlised gold card inserted as shown. Yes - a heat source underneath causes the fairy to twist and turn.
Your turn - after seeing what the rest of my teamies have dreamt up for your inspiration.
Get as twisted as you like and then come back and show us all at Smudgy Antics.
