"You'll Turn Out Ordinary If You're Not Careful."

“You’ll turn out ordinary if you’re not careful.”

 I found this quote on Pinterest and knew I wanted to use it on an art journal project one day.

Coincidently, I found a Klimt greeting card of Emilie Floge from the early 1900's at Cost Plus and immediately knew how I was going to alter it and use that Pinterest quote.  I just didn’t know when I would find the time to get the project done.  The inspiration to work the Klimt/quote came to me when I opened a package from my generous art muse to find a little jar of  Prima Metallique Dark Velvet paint in the package. Ah ha! The time is now! So here I am today sharing with you the final results. Every time, I view this page, it makes me smile. I love, love that quote and how the altered body of the card came out. I altered the Klimt card by inserting an old photo of my face. It took me what seems like an eternity to find a photo of my head with the right angle to make it work on the body.  J

I hope you find some amusement with this piece also. ;)

 Thanks for dropping by. I currently have another art page in the works to add to this book and hope to share it with you soon.
