Work in progress

Hello everyone.
Here is a late (work in progress) valentine treat. 
I have been listening to a lot of Ella Fitzgerald over the past few years and have only recently thought about creating art work for it. This one will change a bit as some of the words need to be re-positioned and might play around with colour a bit. Lots more to come. 
Happy Saturday

Lotions and Potions!


 Shop window display number two. Created with old pharmacy bottles found in the sister chemist shop's attic. I spent a whole day cleaning off the bottles and the lovely old wooden cabinet. They are all original bottles some with the medicine still inside! 
For the other bottles and jars I filled with food colouring and water, some with salt and a few with mint imperials to look like tablets. 
I needed to leave room on either side for other decorations like Christmas trees as they didn't want to keep taking things in and out. 
Its not completely finished yet but I'm pleased with how it is now and as it changes I will post photos. It was a completely bare window before and the amount of people that have stopped and really looked at the things in the window and come in and say that they like it makes my day : )
