VPI Yahoo Group ATC Swap - Downton Abbey

For a VPI Yahoo Group ATC swap I made these ATCs. The theme is "Downton Abbey". This TV series is very popular in England. Here in Germany it is not quite so well known. However, I am a big fan of this great series and I bought all DVDs. Here is a short explanation:

Lord Crawley sees his family heritage, especially the grand country home Downton Abbey, as his mission in life. The death of his heir aboard the Titanic means distant cousin Matthew Crawley, a Manchester lawyer, suddenly is next in line and accepts moving onto the vast estate with his even more modernist, socially engaged mother, who clashes with his lordship's domineering, conservative mother, the dowager. Marrying off the daughters is another concern. Meanwhile, the butler presides over a staff which serves the family, but also lead most of their entire lives in the servants' quarters, intriguing amongst themselves.

The actors on the ATCs are:

Elizabeth Mc Govern (Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham)
Michelle Dockery (Lady Mary Crawley)
Dan Stevens (Matthew Crawley)
Maggie Smith (Violet Crawley, Dowager Countess of Grantham)
Brendan Coyle (John Bates)

The passage of time - Canvas

I tried something new: First I made a print of the head with MOLD-N-POUR dough. Then I poured this form with UTEE. Different parts glued and painted with gesso. Finally sprayed with different colors Dylusions Ink.
You Like It?

Gefällt es Euch?

Triangle Canvas

Finally I have also something to see: This triangle canvas I made the same way as on my previous post. The stamp in the middle is also from LaBlance to which I applied a frame made ​​of aluminum foil.
  At the photo at the bottom you see a lot of "bling-bling". My dear neighbor has removed their cabinets and drawers and found a lot stuff here for my "storehouse". I was of course very happy about it :-)
Endlich habe ich auch wieder etwas zum Zeigen: Diesen Dreiecks-Canvas habe ich auf diesselbe Weise wie auf meinem vorherigen Post gemacht. Der Stempel in der Mitte ist ebenfalls von LaBlance, um den ich einen Rahmen aus Alufolie appliziert habe.
Auf dem Foto ganz unten seht ihr jede Menge "Bling-Bling". Meine liebe Nachbarin hat ihre Schränke und Schubladen ausgeräumt und dabei Einiges für mein "Vorratslager" gefunden. Ich habe mich natürlich sehr darüber gefreut :-)
