I PITY THE FOOL! who doesn't think this is the most awesome sock monkey ever!!

Enough jibba jabba! lets get to it!

- Mr. T

Here are the fixin's I used. I ended up not going with the gold stuff, but got some chains from the thrift store and around the house. Mr. T is also 100% recycled! even the sewing machine I made him on was a hand-me-down!

I chopped up the penguin to make the hair, used the old shirt for his vest and obviously, the linty sock for his bod!

Here are some more glamour shots! No matter how long I picked at that lint, I just couldn't get it all off!


Thanks for looking!

I started out with this rather compelling, although pretty beat up print of a painting. I got it from the thrift store for $3 .  I used colored pencil, pastels,(my printer), water color, tea, ribbon, glitter, and some elmers glue!

I have an idea of what the new image is about...but I wonder what you think it is...I only wish I would have discovered this challenge in time to do what I really wanted to! (I guess that's what everyone says) I think it shall be a work in progress...Anyway, here you have it! thanks for looking


*I used colored pencil to clean up the scratches (they are really almost invisible from straight on).
*I added color to her lips, nails and cheeks and then colored the apple.
*Her halo is colored pencil/ pastel.( I wish I had some gold foil)
*The frame has a new ribbon edge and I started to glitter it, but stopped half way up. It looks a little firey. I dunno, I like it alright.
*The woman is partially cut out for depth
*The adams are print outs which I attempted to give a more sepia tone, but I didn't quite get them the shade I had hoped!

Greenified Apple, and "painted" nails

And her ..."entranced" Adams (all taken from famous paintings)
