artful voyage in Mexico Class Project

The creative fun on the artful voyage in Mexico cruise just went on and on! This project created for us by Wendy Vecchi was quite involved but oh so worth the time spent on it. We started out with an unfinished framed bulletin board and covered it with sewing pattern tissue using Claudine Hellmuth's multi-medium. When dry we overstamped with one of Wendy's background stamps.

We then set about cutting, inking, and stamping grunge paper to make Wendy's signature flowers. We also added a funky art chic with her own glasses, wings, and necklace by Vintaj.

I love being able to fold, roll and shape the grungepaper for added dimension and interest. I used waxed linen thread for the butterfly antennae and added vintage buttons as flower centers.

This is just incredible!
I can see how it would be very work intensive though.
The colors are so rich, and it's very unique. Your skill just gets better and better.
