It's not Purple, it's not hazy but it is (or at least it was) rubbish!


After being pressured (no names shall be mentioned) here is a little upcycled plaque I made for the Through the Purple Haze IndigoBlu challenge. Everything with the exception of the pearls was destined for the bin. It turned out absolutely nothing like what I started out to do but when I have paints I tend to go off at a tangent. I am not sure really what I am supposed to put about it as I'm pretty new to all this challenge malarky ..... the stamp is obviously IndigoBlu and also the flakes it is gilded with....... the flowers are metal cut from old drink cans, the plaque itself said something completely unfunny  and so unmemorable that once I had painted over it I have absolutely no recollection of it whatsoever. I need to go now and buy Blogger for dummies or something with equal informative powers so that I can bring badly updated blog kicking and screaming int the present day....... now that will be a real CHALLENGE!
