Wall Bathing and Pole Dancing Giraffes!

This lo came from Vicki and I having a giggle on the bus, she collects giraffes and I had just found this wee one for her and she made it pole dance on the bus, so had to scrap it.

For the Letters in the Word Dancing, I used Heidi Swapp Schizophrenic naked chipboard letters and I first painted them in MM paint, the colour I used was called eat your carrots. I then got the A C and N and coloured over the top of those with the Yummy stardust clear gellyroll pen for a shine and the DNIG are flocked in the GORGEOUS Doodlebug Flock, now this is some seriously YUMMY stuff.
The plain and the patterned card stock in the Blue are both pre flocked Doodlebug yumminess, so nice to work with.
So here he is JB the Pole Dancing Giraffe

I really loved doing this lo, it was relatively simple but I liked how the elements just fell into place for me, I think I mentioned this before but I am so in love with the Puffy Thickers YUM YUM YUM.
I am not sure how much you can see the detail on the long swirls, but I used a simple chipboard swirl, I painted it in MM shopping bag paint, I then coloured it with the clear stardust Gellyroll pen and when that was dry I used a good coat of Rangers crackle accent and it left a great effect IRL.
After years of detesting my own handwriting I am as (Heidi Swapp) so correctly wrote. learning to love my own handwriting.
I took these pictures of Vicki in Anstruther late spring early summer, doing what Vicki likes to call, wall bathing, I call it crazy as there is a sheer drop down to the sea on the other side of that wall, I have a daring side but my Vertigo say no to wall bathing lol.

So here is the finished piece. Thanks for looking. Hope you all had a good weekend. Jay xx
