Mixed Media Monday "body parts & R for Alternative


I have been working through a book by Sherrill Khan which gives ideas for creative embellishments. The background is made up of bright stamped colours. I made some paper and wire beads and experimented today stamping into polymer clay. The challenge for mixed monday was body parts and I have stamped a womans torso, an egyptian eye and a face into polymer clay. The challenge for Alternative was R for rubbish so I have used a white foam takeaway dish to make the stamps for the background and sun images. The middle part is a thin strip of coloured and embossed foil that is from a pie dish that I was about to throw away. The backgrounds to the clay pieces are embossed foam that was also rubbish So I have combined two challenges today!
