The Artful Diva Collage...

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!

How well you have managed to keep to scalde. It must have taken a lot of searching for the parts.
