Bald is beautiful


This week's theme at The Three Muses is Head with Hair. As you may see on my photo, there is not much hair left on my head, so it is time to make a statement: Bald is Beautiful! The hair on this tag is made with structure pasta and coloured with acrylic paint. I used white and silver Dabbers to colour the background of the tag, before inking it with Adirondack Stream. This gives a glossy effect, which is of course totally lost in the scan :-). The eyes, the bald man, and the text are stamped in black.

Het thema van deze week bij The Three Muses is Head with Hair. Zoals je kunt zien op de foto hiernaast heb ik niet veel haar meer op mijn hoofd, dus is het tijd voor een statement: Bald is Beautiful! Het haar op deze tag heb ik gemaakt met structuurpasta en gekleurd met acrylverf. Met witte en zilveren Dabbers heb ik de achtergrond van de tag gekleurd. Daarna blauw gemaakt met Adirondack Stream inkt. Dit geeft een glossy effect, dat natuurlijk totaal verloren gaat in de scan :-). De ogen, de kale(nde) man en de tekst zijn gestempeld met zwarte inkt.

Thankyou, Mark, for sending me a big smile for today!! Your picture is creative, clever and so funny. Well, maybe only funny to people who haven't lost their hair yet!!
Thanks so much for joining in the challenge.
