something fishy

a broken piece of ceramic floor tile altered ~i love the fish head image with a womans legs~rubber stamps and clip art~gel medium~and edged with copper tape~i haven't done anything altered in too long~once i get a few more things off my plate~i have the need to get back to altering~i love odd things and altering lets me do that~ many things i want to do~ and just not enough hours in the day sometimes

Okay that is really wierd - the fish head with the legs -- disturbing --- yes -- I love it!!! wildly fascinating.... Watcha gonna do with it???

P.S. Isn't copper foil great?? I love to sew through it - couch it - sew around it - heat it up - crinkle it up and sew it on -- it's a great border for things - as well as interesting all cut up into little pieces as slivers of sparkly shine.

This is incredible Tammy..you have a wonderful eye and altering is so much fun...we need to remember to "play" more often.

This is uncanny...I was thinking about you last night, how long it's been since I've popped over for a visit and there you were visiting me!!
