Swoon, Tammie’s drawing challenge
I signed up rather late this week. On Wednesday I thought, “Oh, yeah, drawing challenge!” And it turns out, our host is my friend Tammie, with the word “swoon”.
Oh my gosh, does anyone swoon any more?
I sat in my bedroom Thursday morning and thought about swooning, and kept having images of Edwardian ladies in tight corsets. They used to swoon, didn’t they?
So I went thru a bunch of supplies and pulled out an old Toile de Jouy curtain panel. You know that material? With the bucolic images of lovely Edwardian life.
So I studied it and saw a couple hurrying across a bridge and wondered what they were hurrying away from.
Oh! So that’s it! Will you just look at the state of the apple pickers. The youth these days…eh?
And, does she have a nose ring? And flaming red hair? Is she smoking a cigarette and wearing a pointy Madonna corset?
And does he have blue hair and goatee, and gang tattoos and a huge gold chain? I think so.
And is that a longboard?!? And is he handing her a skull?!?!?
Better hurry along little Edwardian couple. That’s enough to make anyone swoon! 😀
Come hop over to my friend Kelly’s lovely blog Soulful Home when you have a chance. Not only is she a fantastic decorator, she has wonderful DIY ideas. She’s started a Soul Sister Series and I’m being featured as her first soul sister, Isn’t that lovely? And I’ve offered a giveaway of one of my original paintings.
And remember to pop over to Tammie’s when you have a chance to check on the rest of the swooning. 😀
Perfect, ha so your swoon girl!!! You did imagine several things and made it your own. Love it, And those colours, they fit perfectly. x Joke.
Lol, thank you so much Joke. I really had fun punk-ing this poor little cloth up. 😀
