|(the new gown)|
Mary Green from
has set her challenge for this month,
when the participants use the images
provided in a collage sheet prepared by Mary.
I have just about used an element from all
3 images in this 4" x 6" postcard.
(The wife's head, her little hat, and the mistakenly
obscured edging on the top left corner).
For the 'O's on the background, I stuck hole
reinforcers onto a plain gessoed background
and then coloured the postcard with
watercolour crayons. When dry I removed the
reinforcers, leaving the uncoloured 'O's.
"Don't let your husband get into the habit of
never noticing when you wear a new gown."
'The Book of Don'ts for Wives, 1913'
picked up in a charity shop.
Some of the 'don'ts' in this book are screamingly funny!
