Bloomin' Idiot: a self portrait



As hard as it is for me to believe I finally finished my mask for The Beadin' Path's mask challenge. It is on it's way as of today via priority mail.....nothing like cutting it close it's due in Maine this Friday the 30th! I'm happy it's finished and maybe by the time it comes back to me I'll want to see it again, for now I happy it's away. The title "bloomin' idiot: a self portrait" (the self portrait part from my friend Beki Haley - thanks Beki, you make me laugh!) came from when I opened the box and saw the size of the mask. I had to ask myself "what were you thinking?" as usual I wasn't...just jumped in with out a real plan, good things can come from that, or you can make a mess - LOL! After listening to some of my friends talk about masks and how they can make them feel uncomfortable with the open eye sockets.....no soul, empty, haunting I chose to cover mine....though a white and yellow daisy just happen to end up over the eyes. Also the are small blue flowers on the nose....i call them "forget me snots"....hey I had to do something or I may have gone crazy making all those flowers!

Cyn: It is gorgeous and certainly different. I can't wait to see all of them in one place. The interpretations of the mask I have seen are all exceptional. Congrats on a job well done.
