Hi, all!

I’m not done with OoCZ works, but I promise that my 3rd project is a CAS card, and will make an appearance very soon!!!

So today I have a canvas that I began creating for the June Mixed Media & Art challenge, but I gave it a twist and it ended up being more appropriate for the Thematic challenge for June, in the same blog. The mandatory elements are to create your own background and have some type of letters. After priming with gesso, I started my background using texture stamps from Kaisercraft and Prima. Glued some leftovers of die cut tags, from an old work, along with bits of adhesive from the hardware store, and two pieces of the Lulu Fringe Cutaway from Winnie & Walter. Then added sprays and watercolors.

I had this image of the beautiful girl, that I found online, previously saved to my computer for practicing my drawing, and decided to use it in the canvas.

 

 

I wrapped a leftover stripe of silk to her hair for a 3D effect, also because I wanted the extension. In fact, the girl in the photo was already wearing a very similar turban.

 

 

Africa is a passion to me. I’ve never been there, but who knows, maybe one day… I love the people, the amazing sunsets, the tribal prints in traditional fabrics, the beautiful textures and warm colors used in crafts, but most of all I highly admire their ability to create and live with almost nothing… and still being happy.

The stripe of silk is holding some of Africa iconic images. The wild animals were fussy cut from napkins. If you take a closer look, you will see two pieces of cork from wine bottle… can you see the printed pattern? You may also see some earrings, feathers and other adornments like beads and art stones. The words are die cuts from Reverse Confetti, except the “leopard”, which is the brand that was hanging from my umbrella, but sometime during last Winter, the “leopa” decided to be independent from the “rd” :).

    Its a beautiful piece. Love the layout spread, and the two ‘adventure’ pieces going around two different directions really caught my eye! Somehow looks rather cleaner to me than some of your other pieces, but just as involved, though. 🙂 Great going, Cris!

    What a beauty Chris! The silk is such an amazing touch and the way it flows from her head is incredible. Those napkin creatures have found a beautiful home! I love the fun details like the earring and stars. A truly lovely make and I will be pinning. Hugs, Autumn
