This week the theme for the challenge is hands. My piece has vintage clock hands actually embedded right into the canvas. I topped off the hands with a cute little watch part that looks like a flower. As I look at this area of the collage, I think it would be really cool to try and find a fine chain to wrap around those two gears.
I did get a request to try to show off my "alternate" Grungy Monday dimention technique with a bit more detail. Sorry Tim, but I had a terrible time with the techique Linda challenged us on, so I reinterpreted the idea. Anyway, the picture in the previous post really did not capture what I accomplished. Hopefully this image will allow you to see the effect this technique had on the piece. It really is easy, if you can get your detailed cutting done well. Again, I simply used two sheets of the same paper, cut the central image out and mounted it on top of the other sheet of paper. Craft foam serves as the barrier to provide the dimension.
I received another reader request to see a closer view of the other mosaic piece that inspired this whole project. I love to sprinkle Perfect Pearls and set them exactly how they fall. You can see a bit of this technique on the background of my mosiac piece. I have also included a close up of another Art Nouveau gal, complete with gears in her hair. I don't think you could see this very well in the larger pictures and she is another one of my favortie images from this collection.
Thanks for stopping by!
