Dimensional Collage Fragment technique


This week at Studio L3 the challenge is to use the Dimensional Collage Fragment technique as featured in Tim Holtz's Compendium of Curiosities book. As I don't have any of these fragments I improvised with some very thick clear dimensional square stickers. I punched out some hearts from dictionary paper and back this with some pink oriental paper.
The tag is made from chipboard which I painted with white acrylic. then a layer of PVA and while it was wet another layer of white paint. This produced a nice crackle efffect when it dried. I inked this with Dusty concord distress ink.
I stamped the flowers and leaves and painted over them with acrylic paint. I can't paint leaves so I stamped over them with a Tim Holtz swirl and copper embossed it. I embossed the edges and finished off by attaching my three 'fragments'.
thanks for visiting my blog and leaving such nice comments :)
