I went to Venice recently. It was boss.
Anyway, I’m trying not to spend money on souvenirs that end up cluttering up my lil appartment. If I want a souvenir, it has to be materials so I can make something. Let’s see if I can keep this resolution up!!
So whilst I was in Venice, I picked up a cheap Venetian mask of Scaramuccia (I think) – I spent all holiday calling the mask il Dottore but I think that’s a different one. I’m sure someone will be able to enlighten me! I also bought an Italian newspaper – the only one I’d heard of at the newsagents was Corriere della Sera so I bought that one rather than try out my ropey Italian on the vendor.
When I got home, I did a little bit of decoupage to get over the disappointment of the holiday being over and having to go back to work. I stuck a few strips of red and green tissue paper in too, as they are the colours of il tricolore. Old scarface is now up on my craft room wall! Happy days.
