I don't know whether this skinny fits into the spirit of Theme Thursday challenge but here goes ...
I like to paint and draw but I also enjoy digital art which makes anything possible. Well, almost anything. I enjoy messing about with digital elements, using them in different ways to the original intention. So what I have learned is that a bling element can be used as part of a costume. I have painted my own "model" but this could just as easily be done with any type of image. I have taken only one element and used it to build a costume (with paper skirt underneath). Any type of element can be used - chains, hinges, brads, buttons etc. Something to do on a blistering hot summer's day when there is nothing else to do. Or a freezing, icy day when there is no point in going outdoors (for those of you lucky people in the northern hemisphere).
