WS: Women’s History Month

there are so many women of note that came to mind for the WS Women’s History Month theme

I could not pass up the chance to do a Frida Kahlo piece

it all began with a sardine can

and beeswax at our local altered arts group gathering

torn map and tissue papers …  bits of lace … a piece of metal zipper and a crepe paper Memorial Day poppy made by a veteran in 2005 (see it’s good to hang on to things sometimes)

the final touch was the red ribbon holding a mother-of-pearl sacred heart pendant that I have also had around for a while

one word from this American Art Stamp (Designer: Kathleene Callei) went into my Frida shrine

be sure and visit Wednesday Stamper to be inspired by our guest designer Sherry Goodloe …  she created an amazing reversible Fragments necklace for this week’s theme to celebrate women

* * Happy St Patty’s Day … here is a sweet Irish tune for ya * *

I just saw Belinda’s wonderful painting of Frida, Picasso style and now you’ve created a wonderful piece of art with her as the center piece as well. If I hadn’t changed my mind at the very last minute you would actually have seen Frida at my blog too, lol

    Well done Patty, gorgeous design and colours!!

  18. I am amazed by the things you reuse in your art. Never in a million years would I have thought of using a sardine can for a frame. Love your tribute to women’s history. And…missed your Tea on Tuesday. It’s always delighTful.


  19. This is the ultimate recycled piece. I love all the materials you used and how you put the piece together. There is a great deal of symbolism in this piece. I studied it for quite some time, enjoying both color and message.
