Mixed Media Monday - Opposites

My entry is a double sided hanging plaque. On one side we have the Good Girl, who is well groomed, obeys her parents, reads and sews quietly and takes an interest in world affairs



and on the other side is the Bad Girl who likes boys and drinking gin and smoking and staying out late!



Educated in a Convent School I have always had a fascination with Bad Girls, and indeed a fairly misspent youth being one! I think I shall hang her on my workroom door, Good Girl on good days and Bad Girl on those hormonal days so as to give DH a warning to tread carefully and feed me chocolate! The girls are made from collage materials, the edges are sealed with silver UTEE and the hangar is made from fresh water pearls I have had for a while thinking I would make some jewellery except I don't know how!

Moira - you made me chuckle! Love the images and the hanging plaque is perfect!
I can't make jewellery at all - so I call mine 'wearable art'!!

Moira, this is brilliant! We all have a little (or a lot) of the bad girl in us. I love the idea of changing it as the day suits. Bravo!

This is SO CLEVER. and I love the idea of 'posting' warnings on bad days.
