JFF - Week 10 - Circle(s)


It's Vons turn to choose this months JFF theme and she has chosen 'shapes' with the first one being 'circles'.  I covered an old cd with small pieces of lasagne and then painted with gesso.  I applied another layer of lasagne and then another layer of gesso.  Once dry, I painted with mushroom acrylic dabbers.  When dry, I rubber across it with my finger using gold to get a contrast.  The image is from one of the CI books.  The outside of the inner circle is covered in rock candy distressed stickles.  I put brads in the metal plate which says cherish and attached with silicone glue!!!

The other side is backed with a piece of background card that I'd previously made.  Ribbon and fibres were added underneath the backing.

I wondered what you had used to get this effect. How clever to use Lasagne. Love how you have coloured it and set the photograph in the centre and that metal plate and the fibres all add to the dimension.
