Decisions, decisions...

Today I took a really fun and interesting class at
a local store called Paper Vineyard. It was a grungy plaque using metal tape, grungeboard,
Ideology and other miscellaneous ephemera.
The class was taught by Mike Putman and Lesley Fisher, otherwise know as Jack and Cat Curio. They bring everything along so you don't have to and they are so helpful and encouraging, it really was a fun and enjoyable experience.  
So my dilemma is that I could not decide on the final piece to add to my plaque, so I brought them both home with me. Which one should I add, the skull or the clock ???

FUN project!!! You were over by me...I live about 4 miles from Paper Vineyard. :o)

Personally, I like the clock...just haven't gotten into the skull like everyone else seems to be.

I have to vote for the clock because I don't like skull stuff but the piece is wonderful and you did a great job on it.

Victoria said...

Skull! I just think it fits better.

This is an awesome piece - you are so lucky to be able to take a class from them. I've followed them on Flickr and their blog for a long time. Very talented artists!

skull

The skull is kind of cool, but I'd still go with the clock. The skull competes with the bird for attention. Your piece of artwork is ultra cool!

KAT said...

I am SOOOOO jealous - I love their work and have all the stuff to try this out.... I love it!!!!! You are so lucky.... Now for my taste I would add the clock - although the skull looks great too... I'm just not a skull kinda girl - so pick the part that talks to you!!!

Man - I am jealous!!!
