It was a great honor to be the Spotlight Artist for the month of July at Unruly PaperArts. The theme for the month was one of my favorites "Layer on Layer". I used a lot of paints, inks, mists, paper, fabric, images to create layers upon layers in my art! I am sharing the project I made for my "Layer upon Layers" with my Layered Art Doll.
My Art Doll is a page in my Board Book called Fabulous Femmes.
Before adding anything to the page ink the edges. Depending on the project will dictate the color or ink. For this project black ink was used. I like using ink instead of paint because ink absorbs in to the book board.
The edge is distressed with Dew Drop Memento Toffee Crunch. The page is gently inked with Memento Luxe Rhubarb Stalk then spritzed with Dylusions Ink Spray - Pomegranate
Add a thin sporadic layer of Duo adhesive to adhere gold leaf to one half the page.
Adhere Altered Pages collage images (head, wings, arms and torso) to thin chipboard (like cereal box). Fuzzy cut images. Cut Glitz frame in half and ink with Memento Luxe Rhubarb Stalk and Dew Drop Memento - Toffee Crunch. Spray the wings with Shimmer Mist. Adhere images
Ink Leaky Shed chipboard crown with Delicata Golden Glitz ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder. To give the crown an enamel effect add embossing powder several times. Top off the crown with Dew Drops.
Embellish with lace and Petaloo Flowers.
