Week #27

I feel a lot better about this one. #26 still bothers me.

Components: Hand-made paper casting, painted and heat distressed lutradur, junk jewelry (broken) with black fabric backing. The paper fragment was stitched onto the painted lutradur. The lutradur was stitched to the black fabric backing that has been glued to mat board.

Size: 5x7 inches

The jewelry piece was way to shiny for this piece so I knocked it down with black paint. The earring, that I can't imagine wearing, is a broken one that was included in an ebay purchase.

All 27 of the projects can be view on Picture Trail here:

Ohhh, I love the textured paper casting on this, and also that you stitched it on. The background is also very neat and interesting. And the earring is perfect. Great composition. Well done.

Having been 'out of the loop' for a fair while am just catching up.
Well done you for sticking to your challenge. I always intend to start something along these lines and then give up at the first hurdle. :)
All the pieces are really very good but I think this particular one is by far the best.
I really cannot see why you think No.26 is such a disaster. Maybe if you leave it be for a while it will grow on you. :)

Love this bit. I dont seem to have kept up with my 52 pieces. I am back from holidays, not much holiday, more of a race around Queensland but our friend up there can never sit still so I am now home tired and feeding a zillion ponies, just to make me feel better!!
