This week, Sherry had us do a, TRIPTYCH Definition: "A triptych is a series of three paintings. Traditionally two are attached to the central one by hinges and fold over it. Triptychs are often used as an altar-piece in a church."
This is what I came up with:
After finding this picture of three women playing Bingo it all just kind of happened. I am really pleased with the results and put a lot of thought into it. I also found it to be very therapeutic in that it helped to take my mind off of my mom's cancer.
I love these little pom pom trims. I had some on a wall hanging that my mom made me when I was a baby.
I love the fact that these, as Sherry called them, Bingo Babes, are using kernels of corn as their Bingo markers.
This one I made a red pom pom for her beret and worked forever to flatten the back of the button so that I could adhere it to her dress.
I attached the definition of "Bingo" to the first panel. I cut each strip of words out and then aged each with brown ink. I just can't have paper edges that aren't aged. You will notice that each panels back ground paper is aged as well.
I have always loved old watch parts. Funny how things come together. I attached this old watch onto her wrist. Now a days, it would blend right in, but back then a lady would never have on such a huge watch.
So there you have it, my triptych. I hope you enjoyed my work. A big thanks to Sherry, Caz (who has also thought up some great FFCs) and all of the other inspiring women at Etsy Cottage Style!
