Hanging My Head in Shame.........CofC-27


Yep am coming to you hanging my head with shame at my example for the Compendium of Curiosities No 27, Distress Misting Masks. Its so naff...........but after covering this and myself in Terracotta and Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls I was not in the best of moods, especially as I had to go for some special XRays yesterday covered in this stuff, not a good look, no wonder the doctor and the nurses looked at me strangely....lol
To see some wonderful examples of this technique from page 60 of the CofC you need to visit dear Linda of Studio L3 and believe me there are some fab examples there. Will try and do better next week.
Thank you for popping in and hope the visit didn't make you feel too sick....... Take care and have a happy day. Annette x

Make sure you go back looking a mess again and they won't stare anymore..they will just take it for granted that you are an excentric artist!

Donna said...

Gorgeous example Nettie and no need to feel ashamed at all woman! Love the colour and so glad they looked at you strange too, glad I'm not the only one!
Hugs, Donna x

Daniele said...

wondered if they thought you'd gone rusty.....lol, I know the doc laughed when I dropped a frozen chicken on my foot, by the way it looks good to me
hugs

Lisa Somerville said...

Looks fabby to me Nettie, love that colour. xx

Andrea C said...

you are a terracotta nutter hehe this is fab (you are seriously nuts!) you are lucky the docs didn't keep you there and throw away the key tehe x

wearestampers said...

We are all too hard on ourselves sometimes, I do it all the time!!
I love this orange color, and the masking is perfect! I've been putting this challenge off because I'm not good at masking, but got to give it a try anyway!

You are just so cute.. I would have loved to hear you explain that one to the DR...
I think your project looks wonderful..

Hugs, Linda

Pick your head up this instant because you have no reason to hang it in shame. It's gorgeous. I hope that all is well with the XRays however, I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who goes to the doctor covered in crafting stuff. I went recently with hot glue in places I'm still trying to figure out how it got where it did, sitting in the waiting room peeling and pulling it off to some strange looks.

Fliss said...

It looks lovely to me Netty and I know where you're coming from on the covered in inky stuff as I regularly have to go out with technicolour fingers - the hazard of being a stamper who likes making her own backgrounds I think!!!

mustavcoffee said...

Oh Annette you're always so hard on yourself, I love a bit of golden orange especially if it's got some glitter too:0)
Thank you for all your lovely get well wishes, see you soon, big hugs:0) xxx

Shirl said...

Wow wish my naff cards looked as good as this Annette, sadly mine go in the bin. Adore the colour so vibrant.
Hugs Shirley x x

craftattack said...

I like it! But I know what you mean about misting and masking, my kitchen now has some lovely coloured patches to match my best tea towel that I ruined yesterday!
Hugs, Valerie

It is very nice. Hope your day is great. Kim x

kayc said...

Well I think it is beautiful. Love the colour. Kathleen x

Beverly Gotthardt said...

Went over and looked at the others--your's is very worthy. Love how the middle flower on the crown looks like it's the purse closure. Hope your Dr.visit turns out with good results.

Zoechaos said...

I'm puzzled what is wrong with this it looks perfect from here fabulous in fact. Now if a nurse of doctor were to examine you covered in orange paint that might deserve an odd look but not the other way around wear your paint with pride LOL XOXO Zoe

Terry said...

Netty, Your crowned jewel purse is adorable and I love the color! No need to hang your head in shame, because we all love it. So what if you went to the docs a glimmer. I go with grungy looking stained finger nails, because sometimes it takes numerous washings for the inks to come off. Hugs to you!

Doreen said...

You are very hard on yourself Annette.I wish I was half as good as you.I think this is gorgeous.xxx

Mandy said...

Ha ha ha I wonder what they thought was wrong with you, I'm usually covered in glitter lol.
Nettie this is gorgeous, stop being so hard on yourself crazy lady, that's an order
hugs Mandy xx

CuddlyBunny said...

I'm with everyone else here ... whatever it is you're looking at ... it's not what we're seeing!

Your sunshine-colored purse with a pearl-embellished crown is wonderful!

Jingle said...

I find it a bit funny when I end up going out covered in whatever colorant I've most recently used! LOL! I think your project is quite cute!

penny4thoughts said...

You're too hard on yourself, Annette! I think it looks lovely. I also love that someone else goes out in public all inky - I'm sure many have wondered what I've been up to lol!

Martina2801 said...

Do not be so strict with yourself, Netty! It looks fantastic (as always)

Netty said...

Forgot to say my face had the colouring on as well which I hadn't noticed in my mad rush to get there........ no wonder they asked me if I was OK.......lol
Thank you so much for bearing with me on this project, what great friends you are and so very much appreciated. Hugs Annette x

sue-bubbles said...

What a minx you are Netty, 'downing' this lovely piece of art...its lovely, so vibrant and pretty!
Hugs and sparkles for your scan results!

Rosietoes said...

I've been hitting the orange theme recently too Annette. You're too hard on yourself - this just zings!!

Edna x

Yvonne said...

This is lovely, Annette, no need to hang your here!

Brenda Brown said...

This looks good to me Annette - such a vibrant colour and fabby crown.
I hope your xrays went well and if it helps, I went to an office last week with white paint in my hair that I hadn't noticed. Never mind eh?
Have a fabulous weekend.
luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox

Lori said...

You're too hard on yourself.. this is a great example of the technique, Netty! Love this idea, and I laughed when I imagined what the doctor and nurse thought about your orange skin... lol...

Barbara Mason said...

Netty- I love this little purse-oh so Chanel!! Don't beat yourself up so much, silly goose!!! Too bad you can't wear the purse to the Dr.'s office!!!

Faye said...

Not knowing what it's supposed to look like, I'd say that it is gorgeous and no need to feel anything but proud of it. The terra cotta color is great. Not so sure it looks good when painted on people.

Don't fret about the wrong name, as I have also done that a few times.

Hope your tests or whatever turned out ok.

2amscrapper said...

loving this vibrant color! and of course the crown!

Lynn Stevens said...

You don't give yourself enough credit, it looks beautiful to me! and I bet even prettier on you! LOL

Julie Shoemaker said...

Netty, you are too funny. This is a lovely piece. Perhaps it didn't turn out quite as you thought, but lovely indeed. The dr. story, is quite hilarious actually.

Dezinaworld said...

Wow Netty thats fabulous. well done my friend
hugs June xxx

Silvia(Barnie) said...

Gerrie Johnnic said...

I luv your piece GF, you are way too hard on YOU! I would have said it's the latest in suntan lotion! lol, you are so fun, hugz

Kim said...

LOL! From your first sentence, I'm guessing "naff" isn't a good thing..butI love your purse!! So now I'm not so sure! I think you did a great job, and the color is so perect for this blah time of year!

MarleneMAZ said...

What are you upset about this is really gorgeous! I love the bright colours you used. I would like to have seen the reaction at the hospital though :)

Cindy Adkins said...

Oh wow, Netty, I think it looks great!!! And I love the crown and scallops!!!! Wishing you a happy weekend!!!
XO

Maggie said...

I've been to some places covered in ink too but never the hospital......Lovely masking love the crown and jewels.
Thanks for birthday wishes.

Lucy Edmondson said...

Well I love it Netty! I suffer from dirty hands syndrome and I'm sure non-crafters wouldn't want me to make them a sandwich! Hope the x-rays come out ok,

Lucy x

Kathy Eddy said...

Wonderful masking Netty! Sorry you had to wear it to your appointment though. I bet you DID get some strange looks. LOL

Sue said...

This is lovely Annette, and you will certainly have brightened your doctors day lol x

Dawn B. said...

This is gorgeous.. I LOVE what you did here.. I hope your xrays went well even if you were covered in spray.. That stuff is messy.. Have a great weekend.

Nancy Maxwell James said...

Netty
your piece is just beautiful! I am sure the doctors and nurses had plenty of questions about your colorful self! :) beautiful work!

SannaS said...

WOW!!!! Gorgeous piece of art!! Love the bright orange!! =)
Hugs, SannaS

Chrissie said...

i'm guessing naff is a bad thing from your post, but i think it's a delightful color choice and a lovely piece. So raise that talented head high!

1CardCreator said...

You are way too hard on yourself Annette, I would be proud to say I made that. I really do think it looks beautiful. ~Diane

Dezinaworld said...

Hi Netty, just popped by to let you know I have a free background but its just for today then it will be gone
hugs June xxx

PetraB said...

The colour is gorgeous. And don't worry about being messy .... artists have to look like this (lol)

Rachelle said...

What's that saying "I know there's glitter in my hair, I put it there myself"; I think that's on a rubber stamp somewhere. I love your CCC example. I think I have that crown mask stuffed in a drawer somewhere too. Think I'll dig it out.

Kristy C said...

Beautiful!!

Linda Ledbetter said...

Netty, don't you dare hang your head in shame! This is a lovely work of masked art, honey. The color is vibrant and happy, and the little stitches and pearls compliment the crown perfectly. I love it, actually,

I hope all is okay with your health!!! Let me know, okay??
