The challenge: "...using 7 layers to produce a piece of art."
In other words, feel free to use all sorts of materials like paints, paper, fabrics and such to build 7 layers, thus creating a unique texture or piece of art. Idea sponsored by Jo.
Home and the City
I decided to combine challenges from both Illustration Friday and Studio Friday since one offered the theme and the other the process. I used multiple layers in creating this all paper collage image. There are so many here that I can't keep track: glue, paper, paint, glue, paper, paint, more glue...well, you get the idea!
Home and the City version 2
After several hours away from this, I came back and decided to add a white picket fence. I felt it needed a bit more to better show the separation from the country and the city. Oh yeah, and I added a door knob!
wow nice collage
Love your concept and your use of materials. Very nice.
I love the little house outside the city!
like it - great colors and strong feeling to it
Ooh, I love this! Great collage...the colors are fab, very vivid. Awesome illo. =)
Oh, it is great!
You can really see the textures still, it is a very expressive illustration.
Thanks for your kind comments on my blog as well.
The added picket fence did the trick alright! Nice collage! :D
Great contrast between the country and the city! Lovely work.
You collage work is amazing! I wish I had the patience to do all the cutting out. And the clearing up afterwards must be a nightmare! Ha ha. Love the wind-up bear too. That is an inspiration. Your blog is fabbo by the way!
Agree! Wish I had the patience. Very inspiring!
That looks like it would have been stacks of fun to make! I really like the 2nd one, the little picket fence makes it!
Fantastic collage work! i really like them both but I think the white picket fence really makes a statement about the separation of home and the city!
beautiful and enchanting city scene!
this is a stunning collage. i especially like the 2nd version. the fencing underlines the feeling of being once removed.
Great use of layers! I love the colors and the textures. The addition of the fence really nails it! Really nice!
wow, these are cool! i agree that the white fence is a good addition. the overall textures and deep colors are really beautiful!
great idea to combine the 2- Nice image, I like the patterns that the windows make.
moody and nice.
Such an entrancing and playfully delightful image! All your layering well worth it!
Very nice work on these! I love the tactile quality of your work. How much longer can that quiet little house stand up to the encroaching city? Don't give up little house! Don't give up! :o)
Hey, I liked the combo of designs
And Sticky man is nice cool!

Your work is so beautiful, love it!!
