Mixed Media Monday - "Trinchies"

All of my three regular readers are probably asking themselves, "What, pray tell, is a trinchie?" Just for fun, I included a measuring device in the picture to help clue you in. A trinchie is a bit a of artwork that measures 3"x3". It is the challenge piece for this week's Mixed Media Monday.

I first wrapped my cardstock in a piece of Texas map and antiqued the edges. Then I added some symbols of Texas (note: other than the proverbial longhorn steer, cowboy boots and hat, puh-leese). If you look closely, there is a glistening seashell in the lower right corner, corresponding with the coast in the 'lower right' portion of Texas. Last, I added some ribbon and fringe, because I'm sassy like that. I just hope the yellow measuring tape doesn't detract from the *ahem* 'artistry' of the piece. Ha!

Love the map background; cool idea! Uh, where are the boots and the longhorn steer? Can't tell you how disappointed I am. ;)

A beautiful piece of work, and not a yellow rose in sight! :)

Very creative and different from your usual style. That shell in the corner is beautiful and adds a softness to the piece.

BTW, no offense taken about the doorags! I laugh at myself in it since it is so out of character for me but it does keep my hair out of my face. I would never want to drive a motorcycle myself but sitting on the back and looking at all the scenery and feeling the wind on my face feels so refreshing and...well, free!
