Cabinet of Curiosities Challenge: Curiosity


This is the second post for the Cabinet of Curiosities challenge hosted by Bonnie and Kari. This piece was done using the collage method in Sally Jean Alexandar's book Pretty Little Things. (I am obsessed with HER and her BOOK. What an artist!
I'm not sure I'm really digging my interpretation for this challenge. This was the order: magazine image, ink doodles, chalk, stamping, paint, scratchng off, and lastly 3-D. It was defintely something new for me. I've never done this process before. Collaging is actually something very new to me. I don't normally work in these colors either, burnt orange, cornflower blue and pastel yellow. It's starting to grow on me.
I had to start a new blog due to issues signing in on my other account. My other posts are here.
