Plenty more fish in the sea




I love working with new materials so signed up for the plexified course run by Gary Reef as I had never worked with plexiglass/perspex before (for any info you require on working with plexiglass/perspex be sure to check out Gary Reef). I managed to cut the perspex successfully after a bit of trial and error. I have drawn a fish and used paints for the background. Little collaged dictionary words read "plenty more fish in the sea" and to add to the rustic sea theme I have added shells, driftwood and old rusty cogs..really enjoyed working with this new material so expect to see lots more of my experiments with plexiglass/perspex this month. I might put this piece in my Etsy store soon depending on interest in it...dont know yet! I have noticed the challenge at alter it monthly involves twigs so be sure to check out the other entires and especially Pats who is a friend of mine!
