Mixed Media Monday - Eggs

After a terrible week - I'm finally back on the computer and hoping to get everything back to normal as quickly as possible. Our computer crashed on Monday morning when we went to switch it on.....grrrrr!!!! We ended up having to buy a new computer - not sure if we will be able to retrieve anything from the old one yet - and of course, I wasn't up to date with my backing up. Ah well......I only have myself to blame for all the stuff I've lost!

This week on Mixed Media Monday the theme was going to be "eggs". I've decided to put the challenge up now (five days late) and have it run next week as well - so everyone has a chance to catch up.

My piece is an art doll of sorts. It's body is a little stretched canvas (10 x 7cm or 4x2.75in approx.), which I covered with vintage papers. It's wings are made from feathery angel wings that I painted, the legs are twisted wire, and the head is computer generated. The whole piece stands approximately 18cms or just over 7 inches tall. The egg is a quail egg the my daughter gave me.

Having recently gone through a "crash", you have my sympathy. Your example is beautifully done, however!

Bummers about the computer issues, they can be a real joy or real trouble depending on the day.

Great art doll for the theme.
