Not a book...but a secret..up to now...

Hello blogger buddies (:o) Are you curious about my final piece for the Book of Secrets Online Workshop with Andy Skinner? Me too, but about your comments and what you think about it. I tryed again, to think out of the box and to use Andy's technique on something else, than a book cover.
This is also my entry for the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge, because this week theme is: Anything Goes.
My Steampunk Fairy

Started with a styrofoam torso...

...and a wooden candleholder

Coffee on hand?....Well take a seat then.... (:o)

I am soooo excited, to read what you think about my fairy
I used Lutradur for the wings.
Here you see the templates

The inspiration for the wings comes from an award - winning Canadian doll maker and costumer in fantasy and historical - style costumes Martha Boers. Her blogname is Anitique Lilac. You'll find some tutorials here.
The wings are painted with Andy Skinners Timeworn Technique
Hopefully Mr. Skinner is changing his mind about fairys now (:o) You don't know what i'm talking about? Than read this post and this one
Hello my name is Elly and i'm addicted to paint (:o)

Two more pictures i took with sunlight

Thank you Mr. Skinner, for another mind - blowing Workshop.
When ever a new workshop start's, i'm in (:o)

Here is the video made by Master Andy with the amazing results from every participant

Happy Monday

Also Elly wenn ich nicht schon sitzen würde, müsste ich mich nun setzen.
Was ist das herrlich.
Dein Werk ist der absolute Knaller.
Mir fehlen einfach nur die Worte.
Wenn man diesen WS besucht, muss man sich viel neues anschaffen ??
Sei so gut und melde Dich mal und erzähl mal ein bisschen ;)

Elly....did you hear that thud? That was my jaw hitting the floor and it's STILL THERE! This piece is truly amazing! I totally LOVE it! I have signed up to take Andy's Time worn Techniques later this month and I can't wait! I love his work. YOU, my dear, have rocked this! Your styrofoam dress form is just totally amazing! I LOVE the color and all of the amazing texture and dimension you have given to a plain styrofoam dress form. Those wings....OMG...they are absolutely beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful art with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy

Je torso is werkelijk prachtig, Elly! Waanzinnig mooi.

Anjas-Artefaktotum hat gesagt…

Du übertriffst Dich immer wieder selbst, unglaublich, dass das überhaupt noch geht! WAS für ein Wahnsinnskunstwerk, die Idee alleine schon mit dem Kerzenleuchter, dann die Ausführung. Es ist immer alles bis ins letzte Detail bei Dir liebevoll gemacht, das mag ich so sehr!
Ganz große Kino!
