a Donna Disc Thing


Virginia sent me ( donna louise rodgers)  her desert island disc box and hoped that as well as selecting a track and doing a 'page, ' that I might also add to the cover/box.  So I masked off and sprayed.



 took out a piece of cardboard substrate,

listened to the tracks and had a good look at what Virginia had done:

Then I set to work on my contribution:

Gesso applied ( x3 layers)  sketched and shaded with Graphite a  life study of pregnant lady,
inked,
waxed,
 hole punched
 integrated style so it works alongside  Virginia's  own page
 I added my 'famous face' postcard as a signature piece - you can see it nestling in the lid
 on the back of the reclining nude - I wrote the lyrics and the reason for the choice of track, stamped and embossed my rapture stamp (available from the artistic stamper) -
then protected the work with  freezer paper and tissue

 it's a wrap
 details:  Santana Smooth

hope you like it V

  3. This is absolutely beautiful Donna! I can't wait to see it for realz :)

    Glad the postcard arrived. Did the eye on the back survive? I was a bit worried it would all get washed off in the rain :) The words are lyrics from one of my favourite songs - "Look On" by John Frusciante - the resonate with me, and apparently with you too!
