Double Deuce Dare You

I was sent all these goodies in a special swap where you get a package of pieces and have to make an item using at least half of them. It was a really nerve wracking swap - I've never altered a slide mailer before and I'd never used grunge board either so it was a real voyage of discovery. I covered the mailer with paper sprayed with colour sprays and cut out holes for the niches. I made little collages to fit into the holes and decorated the rest of the mailer with the images and bits and pieces. It was the fact I just had one large wing that reminded me of that quotation and so the theme of friends was born. The wing is painted with white acrylic then coloured with Marvy Le Plumes. It needed a little decoration so I doodled on it using on the pens. It will now set off on its journey to my swap partner.
