Art Freebies is a new blog created by June who each week is going to post a freebie image for us to use in a challenge - we can make anything and in her words "as long as you use this image in your work in some way. ATC'S, COLLAGE, CARDS,TAGS, ALTERED ART, DIGITAL, ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING"
The freebie image this week is of Lady Macbeth. I have made a simple ATC by first sticking on the image then making a 'peeling paint' effect background using petroleum jelly and acrylic paint (smear on the jelly, then paint straight over the top and once the paint is dry, wipe over with a dry cloth and the jelly acts as resist.) The quote 'what's done, is done' is from Macbeth (Act 3, Scene 2)and was said by Lady Macbeth to her husband who was distraught after having murdered King Duncan at her instigation. I thought the red peeling paint effect represented all the blood shed in the play.
