Creative Blocks

I thought I would post a picture of my latest creation.  This project is a class Tim Holtz offers, however a creative group I gather with chose this as our latest altered art project. I was impressed at what we were able to produce in our afternoon together. 

The base for this collage is a large canvas with several small canvases added on the surface to create blocks and dimension.  A variety of techniques were used to create my piece.  General collage and distress concepts were employed along with image transfers processed with gel medium and stamp/tissue paper.  Found objects, game pieces, scrapbook elements, napkins, Ideaology findings, old clock parts, grungeboard, vintage used stamps, tissue tape and ephemera were utilized as well. 

I love the ecclectic look.  I know it is busy, but I do love the layers.
