The last time we saw little stick-person-mini-me, she was stood on the edge of a cliff, battling her on-again-off-again fear of heights.
Today she's facing another fear, and climbing an ever steepening hill of money problems :|
But the battle, uphill as it may be, is one she believes she will eventually win. Once the kids have all left home, perhaps, and the mortgage and loans are finally paid.
This page is my contribution to the current prompt over at A Year In The Life Of An Art Journal:
The Prompt: What's the deal?
The Song: Running Up That Hill by Placebo (or Kate Bush)
Written Lyrics HERE
Product/Technique: Playing Cards
I love the song, both versions, Kate Bush from my younger days and Placebo a little more recently
I used the playing cards to build a hill for mini-me to climb. The numbers on the cards and the background represent money problems, which I'm suffering from majorly right now :(
One of the places I have identified that I need to spend a lot less is my local supermarket, Tesco, so it's ironic that that's where I got the kiddies sponge numbers that I used to stamp copper paint onto the background. They were only £2.50 though and, to be fair, they are the first "art supplies" I have bought in yonks!
The title was made with some ancient letraset rubons that have been sitting unopened in one of my craft drawers for many many years, they still laid down good as new though. Actually, I'd forgotten how much I like rubons, I will have to make a concerted effort to use them more often, as I have a pile of them....
