Mixed Media Monday - Time


Well, it's Monday again, and I've joined in Mixed Media Monday again. The theme is "Time". Ah, nice and ambiguous.

This is my bit - my favourite pretty lady (from a lipstick ad in an old magazine).

Are we over the "words cut out one by one" trend yet? Nah, me neither!











Love the cool stamp alphabet? It's the remains of a kids' stamp set - you know, make up the letters into words on the little frame, with tweezers. Far too fiddly for today's kids, but I mounted some like any other rubber stamp alphabet. The squares around the stamps show every time; you can't reliably get just the letter stamped. So I decided I really LIKE that look!

How very clever! Yes, we are all looking for that long lasting lipstick, aren't we? And no, we aren't over the cut out letters. This brought a smile to my face.

It's a great piece, Pauline! By the way, you didn't do anything wrong, some messages go into the spam for no apparent reason. I do check it a couple of times a day. Hope your finger is feeling better :-) Diane
