More Altered Art & Project Runway

This week I finished up the last book in the Altered Art Round robin project. This book's theme was Fairy Tales, and I chose 'Damsels & Witches'

The two page spread -

Fairy Tales - Damsels & Witches

Closer view of 'Damsels' and then 'Witches'

Fairy Tales - Damsels & Witches pg1Fairy Tales - Damsels & Witches pg2

I printed off some John Waterhouse paintings, perfect damsels, and I found some creepy Witchy images online too. I used gold tulle, flowers and paint on the damsels page and some vintage black tulle and lace on the witches page. The vintage writings came from some poetry pages that were in with Jessie Laurent Harper's things when I bought the hats and dresses from her estate 3 years ago. The piece I used for the Damsels said 'come back to me sweetheart' and the one for the witches said 'walk with me in the darkness' - which I thought were perfect for the pages.

OK, I'll do a brief Project Runway recap. Designing costumes for Lady Wrestlers. How fun to see Tim Gunn standing up there with those gals! Chris won, how could he lose with his drag queen costume background? Ricky was finally out, and there were no tears, which was a surprise. So now we are down to 5 designers. Today is the Project Runway show at Fashion Week. I was reading a live blog feed from the show and all 5 are showing today. So at least 1, maybe 2 are decoys.
My early prediction was that the final 3 would be Rami, Christian and Jillian. But I think Rami has lost his lustre with the judges, so he may not make it to the final 3. My favorites picks would be Chris, Jillian and SweetP. But I know that Christian is definately going to be in there, because the judges love him. SweetP had several great dsigns, but she also choked in a few competitions too, so I don't know how the judges will look at that.
Rami still has a chance though, going by my 'investment theory'. Rami already has an established name in Hollywood. The judges - and I don't mean Heidi and the gals - I mean the REAL judges, the ones who sign over the $100,000 check - are looking for someone to invest successfully in. Look at Chloe and Jeff, both had businesses and knew what it took to run those businesses.
Ahhhh, I don't know who'll win. I can't wait until next week's episode!
