This strange little fella was spotted nicking off with an expensive piece of jewelry! He buzzed through the room and out the window and everyone there thought it was just a willy willy blowing through. This high speed camera just happened to catch the guilty culprit redhanded.
This is a page in a journal. It is a mixed media piece with pages from a vintage book in the background. Then I coloured the background with watersoluble crayons and acrylic paint. Then I collaged on the images of the man, the ring and the wings. I used a white pen marker to do the feathers on the wings and outlined the figure with black fineline pen.
If you look carefully, you will see the woman that the ring was stolen from in the picture. And she is wearing the very same ring!
Can't find her? Take a close look at the wings!!

I was commenting to Helen the other day about how fantastic your mixed media creations are, so I thought I should let you know too! You are so talented I enjoy seeing what you have been creating, so out of my league!

That is GREAT! I love that background. I see a little diamond by the far edge of his wing...did the woman stow away in his wings? Ha! He thinks he's gotten away from her but she's right on top of him. How did that bad boy get wings?

Clever piece! I love the background treatment, blue being my favorite color.
I see you're my newest stalker! Thanks, nice to see you there :)
Have a wonderful week!
