Better late than never right?
Collage pieces take a long time to create,
and even longer to dry in the rain!
After some issues with barometric pressure and
humidity, I deconstructed my original project, salvaging what
I could along the way, and started all over again.
I used an 8 x 10 canvas, painted it with metallic acrylics,
and began decoupaging various Salvador images and quotes.
I really fell for this Dali image from The Octopode Factory ,
and wanted him to take center stage on this project.
After coloring him with Copics I glued him to a piece of
card stock. Then after fussy cutting that, I glued some cardboard
to the back in lieu of foam dots for added stability and dimension.
Then I Glossy Accented him for added protection.
I got to use some of those creepy doll eyes, which I thought
were appropriate somehow along with Mr. Hitchcock.
I also managed to destash a bunch of brads, adding a
metallic masculine touch.
The melting clock is another Octopode image that I felt
needed some Glossy Accents and some cardboard
for stability and dimension also.
Although glitter doesn't tend to show up on camera,
I did use some gorgeous black glitter from Doodlebug
to accent that cwazy mustache! I used touches of glitter and
Stickles throughout this project for some serious sparkle!
I also continued using various quotes around the outter edges
for some more interest.
I really enjoyed stepping out of my creative box and making
a pretty cool collage hanging to represent my fondness of not
only Salvador Dali's art, but his profound words as well.
Thanks for stopping by!
