Compendium of Curiosities Challenge, Week 6

This was SUCH a hard project for me!!  I'd never worked with burlap except in a ribbon or a printed die cut that I just adhered as is.  Coloring it was a new animal, and I'm so not entirely happy with it.

The COC3 Challenge this week is Altered Burlap Panels using Tim's products.  If you don't have a copy of A Compendium of Curiosities Vol. 3, you can get one here.  COC3 is being sponsored this fortnight by the fabulous Funkie Junkie Boutique.  One lucky winner will get a $25 gift certificate to their store.

I had SUCH struggles with this panel!  First of all, the color.  I wanted a purple and red background, but as it dried, the red took over.  The more purple I added, it just made the red darker.  Oh well.  You also can't see the collaged music background, ink took it over.

The inspiration for this, like 99% of my art, was music.  I almost put a few lyrics from "Brave" on here, but I decided to just let the statement speak for itself.  The bow and bag of arrows on the dressform signify strength.

And a tiny bit the Green Arrow.  I looooove watching Arrow.

I'm entering some challenges of course:
Thanks so much for looking and happy crafting.  Laters!
