Little Monsters...

"'s the quote I want you to put on the canvas I want you to make...." Er, what? Nothing else colours, sizes, images, themes.....fabulous. Just the kind of commission I love...not!!!!
So, armed with that brief...I made this....
I started off with a box canvas, and created a background with paints in green, turquoise, black and purple. Lots of smearing, stencilling, printing and stamping.....
I used button stacks as feet....
And a  flower under a door knob as a topper...
When it came to an image, I was a bit stumped. The quote (from Harry Potter) seems to suggest whoever is saying it isn't putting a human figure on there as I normally do didn't seem right. In the end i decided on these adorable monsters from Stamping Bella!
My 'customer' arrived back from college and approves, so all is well!!! phew!!!
Love Trish xxxxx
