Turq Turq Turq - and how a word changes everything

Take a Word asks for the color turquoise,  PaperArtsy challenges us to add a word ( or more) and Moo-mania wants to see a bottle... Oh I had a field day, you may well believe that! I don't usually want to cram in too many challenges, but it seemed like match made in heaven.


"Exhibit 6"

Background is partly painted and sprayed with glimmer mist, then stamped with white, and partly a torn store tissue paper that happened to have a beautiful turquoise shade.
 Butterfly comes from a ephemera book by Crafty Individuals, a lovely turq and blue. I knew I wanted to use the giant bottle and create a terrarium in there. But the card still looked empty.
Most times you don't need words at all, they are just surplus ballast. But this time some words were needed. However, depending on the wording you will view the picture quite differently. What if it said "I like my new home" ? Wouldn't feel quite as sinister, would it? But I seem to have a sinister streak, so of course I went with "exhibit 6". (And also because a longer word would not have fitted...) I was quite happy to finally have a use for these alphabet discs.

Thanks for looking!

  5. Hei! JOs haluat tulla mukaan lintubongaukseeni, niin saat minulta siis lintujenkuvia, jotka on aakkostettu. Tarkoitukseni on tehdä sivu art journaliini aakkosittain ja jos haluat, voit tehdä samoin tai tehdä yksittäisiä ATC-kortteja, ihan kuinka haluat. Tarkoitus olisi siis seurata missä minä olen menossa ja seurata perässä/rinnalla. Jos katsot tunnisteistani MY-kohdat, niin pääset jyvälle ideasta.
