Renaissance Mash Up 1 of 3

First thanks everyone who left a response to my Patina Dilemma....fortunately the "green cast" of the photo is not a true color - it really is more brown so I am pretty certain it is not some kind of mold (yeah). No washing for the moment but I will keep an eye on it. I am going with the suggestion to "take turns" on the hangars - the collar is currently hanging on the "bunny" hangar in the hopes that Spring really is on its way LOL...
So what is Renaissance Mash Up? Take an image (person or other) from the Renaissance period and "mash up" with something unexpected. I got the idea from Mandy's Magical World. It was my most recent Mail Art theme with Lenna, Jo and an extra one with another peep, Leslie. 
Hers actually made its way to Maple Hill first. Very lovely and a tip on using liquid matte gel medium (rather than my mod podge standby) for the final coat - I really like the effect and will have to try it.
I had a lot of fun with hers - as soon as I saw these girls I could not help but think of Mall Rats (I am pretty sure this day and age that is where they would be - if I could have figured it out one would have a cell phone LOL). The background collage is from magazines from the 60's (I was determined to use only what I had) with the exception....
...of this! Well, that's where you would "find" them right! Can't wait to unveil my exchange with Lenna and Jo. Enjoy. Jewels

  1. Love 'em both!

    I am definitely barking up the wrong tree with mine but they're kinda finished now so I'll pop them in the post anyway.

  2. Ha, I was up the wrong tree also. I didn't understand from your email, Jewels, that I was supposed to combine Renaissance with something unexpected. Gotta read better next time. Does an upside down priest qualify LOL?
