I was so happy during her Mixed Media Layering Class on Friday at Stamping Details in Poway. The process of building many layers, made up of: deli wrap paper, netting, ribbon, diaphanous materials and cotton swatches, was too much fun.
Deli paper was used as the base and a heavy piece of cotton was adhered to that. We used Golden polymer matte medium to attach the materials on top of each other and stick it down. After I was satisfied with my design, I used Golden liquid acrylic paints and painted foam stamps, which I stamped on my fabric collage. The final details were added with Golden interference and metallic paints to create depth and shading to my piece. I'm really pleased with the results.
I was so overjoyed making this collage, I made my first fabric purchase at Joanne's and picked up enough cloth to make many more. Hopefully, I'll made another one tomorrow at my weekly painting session at Sally's lovely home in La Jolla, CA.
