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.

Kerri,
I love these cards! The colors are amazing and I really like how the mix and match patterns compliment one another so well. My favorite is the green one. These are the kind of cards that you could frame as tiny art pieces.
Thanks for sharing.

The contrasting textures, patterns, and materials really make these exquisite! I love the rooster...the colors you chose are quite warm and complimentary.
