Sassy Lassy Meets Sue!

Multi-media tile. Image courtesy Sue Miller Art
 It's been 'multi-media' week around here; I don't remember the last time I made a 'simple card'.  My brain has been in hyper-drive with lots of new and fantastical ideas and I am not getting a lot of sleep. Here is the latest  multi-media 'tile' I finished (today).
This tile is made using a 71/2 square inch corrugated cardboard packing divider.



I gave it a few coats of Liquitex and then began my collage. The black part on the canvas is xray film which I layered over cocktail napkins and patterened paper.  The xray film is SO cool because it is a different surface, it has varying degrees of opacity, and it loves alcohol inks.

The image is from Sue Miller.  Sue has a wonderful set of Art Postcards which (I think) are an incredible deal.  The raised square to the left of our pretty maiden is a tiny wood tile which I decoupaged with the matching cocktail napkin ( only use the printed ply).
I can now use this as a topper for a large card/frameable art, or as a stand-alone piece of art.  I like working on this thick cardboard, or chipbaord first because it allows me to take my time finalizing its ultimate purpose.
Thank you for stopping by,

  1. This is fabulous. Love how bright and cheery and how many interesting things you've added. Thought since we visit so often on The Hive, it made more sense to visit on our "real blogs".
