SMUDGY ANTICS and MACABRE MONDAY.....

You still have a couple of days to join in these two brilliant challenges..... SMUDGY ANTICS challenge is BLACKBIRDS.... any kind of blackbird you want.... i used one of the ravens from SMEARED INK'S QUOTH THE RAVEN set.
I faux rusted a small bird cage.... added lots of bits and pieces..... then made myself a dimensional RAVEN... lots of layers and fussy cutting..... then glazed it..... i even made the little rolled paper flowers.... i must be getting girly! I hope you'll have time to join in....you have til Saturday teatime..... LETS SEE SOME BLACKBIRDS...PLEASE?

I'd like to enter my caged raven into the following challenges

NOW to something completely different..... MACABRE MONDAY where the challenge is CHAIN ME UP, CHAIN ME DOWN.
I decided on a mixed media canvas.... and a SMEARED INK IMAGE (who else?)
The lady in chains is layered and glazed.... i cut up an old belt for the bondage straps..... and distressed the recycled canvas..... i used chains and upholstery tacks...... the words are rub ons..... this ones enough to scare the life out of ya..... and my grandad would be mortified if he'd have seen it! Get your chains out and join us at MACABRE MONDAY.....you have a couple of days still to play.

  13. Lyn, I love both of your pieces. You did a fantastic job on the bird, it looks so real. This must have taken so much time to do but what a great effect. I also love Chain Me Down, she looks like such a Beautiful Tortured Soul. Thank you for sharing this on Recycle, Re-Purpose & re-Invent.
