Inspiration Strikes!

Do you ever start a project and then slowly it starts to go horribably wrong..so you leave it.. sometimes months and months and then one day you look at it agan and a wash of inspiration takes over.. Well thats just what happened with this piece.
I decided to re-visit it after months of it sitting on top of the unit beside me to create my woyww challenge piece, but it wasn't working for that either so i left it again till the other day.
I splodged some paint about, collaged some lost and found timmy papers about the place, a smidge of ink, bit more ink..a segment of car grill left over from when my OH re-meshed his bumper, a cardboard cut out of Mona from an old jigsaw box... some metal letters and a couple of screws and voila..
One rather large {14" x 10" x 1.5"} Mona Canvas.

She is now hanging proudly in my bedroom, reminding me every morning to SMILE!
