My Own Mona Lisa

This was a battered old frame found at a boot sale. I felt it needed filling with something sombre and so after colouring my own background paper with distress inks and stamping a background in Versafine Smokey Grey (my all time fave ink) I added the main stamped image of the woman and from there, it took on a life of its own. If I liked my own handwriting I'd add some text on the right hand side. Maybe one day, but I'd have to practise. I have a book where I've written all my favourite quotes and they're just waiting in readiness to be utilised! She blends beautifully against my bedroom wall. The search for similar frames is on!
