Week 2 Laurel Bahe

I didn't have embossing metal so I used tin foil rubbed over some plastic dinosaur sheets from my textures for painting bucket.  I glued the foil to paper and then to a stretched canvas, 5"x7",then used acrylic paint and collaged papers.  I tried to add stitching when the foil was just glued to paper but the thread just kept breaking, I guess the foil cut it, so I just have a little stitching.

It turned out kind of dark and creepy but I am having fun experimenting with the weekly theme.


  1. I love this piece, color, content, and the way the paint and metal work together to make something that appears ancient.

  2. I agree with the first comment. The color is luscious and the piece looks very aged.
