March "Smeared and Smudged" Member Blog Hop!

Hello everyone. I would like to welcome you to March Blog Hop for the o 1 and only "Smeared and Smudged" Forum.
The theme was "Mixed Media". I have for you an altered  item in which also I would like to enter into the weekly challenge at " Theme there this week being "Alter Something" You can get there by clicking here:
I have used many various mediums on this piece of wood left over from an outside summer project.
Frida is one of my all time favorite painter's. The bigger image on the piece is one of my favorite's of her's as it portrays alot about her inner being and frame of mind as alot of her life she was in pain and had to be in a laying down position. I couldnt image what that would feel like.
Hope you guys Like this piece. I have uploaded a couple picture's for you to see.
I would also like to share with you a pair of earring's that I made yesterday as well. I took a lil ceramic miniature doll that had been laying around here for a while and took her arms off wrapped them with red wire and put an earring hook on them and wore them all day today. Everyone that saw them loved them. I used brown paint on the arm's before I wrapped them in wire. put it all over and then wiped it off leaving it just in the crack's.
Hope you guys like. I think this also qualifies for an entry into the weekly challenge at Theme "Alter Something"
Your next stop on this Blog Hop today is onto another awesome crafter's blog. Madeleine's blog by clicking here:

WOW MaryKay your piece of wood has taken on a new life BIG time. So many things to see, as BD said - had to enlarge it to try and see everything - I know there's other bits hidden that the camera will not have captured. Simply amazing.
The earrings are such fun as well, I bet they'll be the talk of the neighbourhood.
Both pieces are exceptional. Hxx
