une femme

Dans ma maison il y a…..une femme.  There is “a woman” in my house with a PW sunshine face.  I came across a few of these .75 inch thick wooden house shapes amongst my supplies.  It seems to happen that way when I am looking for something else 🙂

I crackle painted the background and gave my lady a new head.  The trim on the roof is from a can of garbanzo beans.  I could hardly wait to have some on my salad so I could peel off the label!

After a few highlights with my gel pen along with smudges of ink here and there, I glued on a pressed piece of dusty miller from last year’s garden for the butterfly to land on.  I really like matte gel medium for that sort of gluing.
