Studio Friday -"seven layer salad"
"... using 7 layers to produce a piece of art. Have you done anything using only circles or only triangles (squares etc.) I loved the challenge of creating with the brush in our teeth! Maybe creating only using pieces of Matt board for the impliment to apply paint! I do that with my students at school and they produce some really interesting things."
I did not have time this week following the fourth of July holiday to create a new piece of 7-layer art, so I am posting some greeting cards that I made awhile ago...some have seven layers, some have six. They're made with a variety of textured papers, and topped with rusted metal shapes that are bound with wire and beads... the papers were in a "paper by the pound" pack that my generous friend Sharon Green gave me, ages ago. The papers in these packs come in all shapes, sizes, imprints & textures, so they are very easy to layer into a collage or on greeting cards.
