I skipped a week in Life Book 2013 and now made it up. Week 28 is led by Jane Davies. We are to create a collage figure self-portrait.
I started with a self-portrait head shot. Flipping through various magazines I found neck, hands, arm, body, makeup brush, leg, shoe. The tiara is made from an ad for a ring of a famous jeweler. These elements were adhered to the background with matte medium.
The background contains watercolor paints, gesso, India ink, water soluble crayons; rubber stamps.
This was a fun project even if I do look like a gangster's moll!
