Mask Series #7: The Work Continues

I spent a good bit of time on mixed media artwork #7 in my mask series today. It’s coming along quite nicely. This one is entirely more complex than the previous pieces. I hope that translates to something truly nifty that people will enjoy, maybe do a double-take on. And I realize that just because I put a lot of time and effort into something doesn’t mean I’ll come out with something deemed “good.” On the other hand, I’m sure having a lot of fun putting it all together. It probably doesn’t seem like it to my family, though, as I’ve had to go on several scavenger hunts today, looking for specific items that I know I had on hand but couldn’t find. Drove me nuts! I really need a craft/art/sewing room. And one day, I’m sure it’ll happen. So here’s part of what I worked on today. It may not seem like much but it took quite a bit of time and I held my breath a lot. I purposely edited this photo with the colors sort of washed out. I don’t want to spoil the viewing when the artwork is complete. Feel free to ask questions or leave comments. I love to talk…would talk the ears off a mule sometimes. I try to tone it down a bit in replies, though. Stay tuned for more on this project!

This is where I am so far in my work on the background. There's still a good bit to do. So far my adhesive is working very well, and that's saying something. I'm not the gentlest person around, even though I try. Painted marbles, shiny fabrics, reflective fabrics, and a bit of copper wire...so much more to come!

At least, I hope that’s what this will look like when it’s done. 🙂
