I chose a fantastic image called Robot #1 from Ike's Art
I fussy cut the helmet and chin strap from the image printed onto the Kanban Metallica paper and used my bone folder and the palm of my hand to break the fibres and add a curve and dimension to them. I stuck them down onto the first printed coloured image, and then stuck the hands I had cut out and coloured from the second print. I finished the image with shading with a Distress Crayon and added some bling from my stash and a mini cog from Dusty Attic I had heat embossed with Debbi Moore UTEE embossing powder then stuck to the eye patch.
The background is a mix of papers from Kanban Metallica and from Tim Holtz Idea-ology Lost and Found. I tore the papers up and stuck them to my Daler Rowney mixed media A4 page and added Liquitext Heavy Gesso in white in patches with an old credit card, and some mini and large cogs and the word Dream chipboard pieces from Dusty Attic that I had heat embossed in pewter and gold Debbi Moore UTEE embossing powder. I fussy cut the completed image and adhered it to the background, and added some washi tape to the background top and bottom to complete the piece.
Here are the materials used to create this piece:
Distress Markers (see pic 2 below for colours), Distress Stickles (see pic 1 below for colours), Distress Watercolour Crayon, Waterbrush, Kanban Metallica papers, Tim Holtz Lost and Found papers, washi tape from stash, bling from stash, Liquitex Heavy White Gesso, old credit card, silver and gold pens from stash, chipboard pieces from Dusty Attic, Debbi Moore UTEE embossing powders, leather tag from shoes.
