4x4 Friday - Men

This week's challenge was to create a 4"x4" piece of artwork about Men. My first thoughts were about the Victorian times when there were real Barbers' shops & men had shaves with foam & cut throat razors. So I collaged the piece below. The background is some wrapping paper with birds feathers on.

I was quite pleased with the piece & then I decided it was time to try & get caught up on some of the challenges I missed. I didn't start until number 5, France. So below is no.4, Flourish. I nearly did women but decided going backwards made more sense!!
Paper is papermania, Inspirations warm tones. Flourish is stamped in purple ink using foam stamp. Ephemera is HOTP. Quote is a rub on.
