Craft Barn Alpha Challenge - Letter M

Afternoon all,

tee hee, I am subjecting you to some of my own drawing today!!  Ha ha ha the letter M could only ever have been one character as far as my theme goes and that is MEDUSA!! Luckily for me she still falls under the Ma - Me twist that has been added to the current challenge letter.

If you fancy joining in you will find all the details here and for a peek at all the M entries so far please pop on over here.

Here you go........


and some scans for a little more detailed view........





A quick and simple painted, stenciled (The Crafters Workshop) and stamped (Claudine Hellmuth foam set) background. Medusa's head comes from Google images and has been coloured with promarkers and glitter pens. Lol she definitely needed a body though so I put my 'brave' pants on and drew the body for her!!!!

Again I found that the word was in the dictionary but the definition relates to a life-cycle phase of the jellyfish so I have added a definition of my own to fit my entry.

Many many thanks for popping by and leaving a comment if you feel you would like to.  I am hoping to catch up on my visits to the other challenge entries over the next couple of days, promise!!!!!!!!

Huge huggles

Dawn x

First of all - you scared me half to death!! Of all the things I hate more than anythings are snakes. I shudder just to say the word. I do find your pages extremely creative and so well done. What a mind you have - Very well done!!!!!!
