An Adventure in Paris (SCD Twinchie)

Birthday month continues over at "Something Completely Different," as does their celebration of twinchies.  This week's subject is Paris.  This tiny (2"x2") bit or artwork features some images off a collage sheet I made of photographs I took in Paris.  The Notre Dame gargoyle is matted on plaster spritzed with Adirondack Color Wash (just like the other two SCD twinchies I made this month, here and here).  I have one more square of plaster left which I'll use for their call next week.  I wonder what the subject will be . . .

I wonder..I think it makes the perfect background for the gargoyle.

First of all I look at this and think it's a great piece of art. Then I realise it is only 2" square - how do you manage this?!!! The aged feel of the plaster square goes so well with the gargoyle and gives a real taste of the 'shabby chic' of Paris.

I agree with Deb and Sian - the plaster is perfect for the gargoyle, and the fact that this is such a tiny canvas altogether ... amazing!
