Yesterday I promised you more about the mounted heads, meet Amanda. Poor Amanda died in battle against the Soul Sucker and his army and the Soul Sucker drug her body back to the castle and mounted her head! It now hangs in the front hall of the Castle of Corporation as a warning to all.
Amanda's wooden plaque is 4 x 4". Her right eye is a vintage watch piece and of course she's sculpted over an armature and hand painted. She's available in my Etsy shop :o)
Okay so now let me tell you about the day I have had...it all started out with Flickr, I wanted to finally put some things in my flickr account and put one of those nifty little bages on my blog. After about an hour of searching for how to make the damn badge, Ginny was kind enough to help a sister out and sent me a link. Wooo Hooo! So I generate it, and go to add it to blogger...here's where more trouble starts. I add it to the generate html little area, and for some reason it puts 3 of them on my blog...okay so I check them yup same thing so I delete the other 2 only in this process I now delete the background html code!!! You know that OH S&*t! moment???and of course there is no undo button. So...I went back to the background place (notice the button in the top left hand corner of my blog if you are looking for some cool free backgrounds) and I picked another background, well now blogger no longer has the 3 column minima or if they do I can't find the damn thing! I have links that have disappeared, things are rearranged, the colors of the text are strange colors....well you get the idea, at this point I'm in html blogger code hell.
So instead of cleaning up the mess I showed you yesterday, or working on the other mounted head Steampunk Soul I worked on getting my blog back together...What do you guys think? You like the new look? I wasn't sure at first. My oldest, Brandon, said he thought it looked better. Any thoughts? And let me just say that when I finally finished with this and went to use my drill it was not working...I think I should just go get a glass of wine and say fugetabout it! See how much happier I look?? Hope the rest of you are having a fantabulous night! I'm off to drink that wine and eat pizza! xo
I'm like most artists, I've been creating something for as long as I can remember. I have explored many types of media and love experimenting with new things. Mixed media seems to be where my heart belongs. I can combine my love of painting, sculpting, adding found object all into one. The Steampunk Soul series evolved after I took a job with a corporation--the Soul Sucker. I hope you enjoy my artwork! xo Michele
