WW: Captured {Linky}

I think I'm finally done with this piece. It's title is, "Captured". I showed it once before, but it wasn't finished then.


Mediums: Fabric and Ribbon (Dress), Thread (Bird, Hair, Strings on the Clock, Necklace, and on her Sleeves), Acrylic Paint, Glue (Floor, Molding and Hoop Skirt), Transfer Technique (Wall), and 1/2 Pearl (Necklace), and Toothpicks (Cuckoo Clock).


Backside: I'll be sure to coat that with glue.


I have to ask: Do you like her ghost like, where you can see the background through her, or more opaque? I like the background peeking through. To me it unifies the image more. A coworker stands with me. It brings one thing into another. My husband wishes it wasn't see through. He's like, "What is she a ghost, or something?" Opinions are helpful.


Backside: I'll be sure to coat that with glue.

That's a beautiful piece. At first, I wasn't sure if it was a photo and then I saw the description. I wish I could see the texture. I like her a bit see-thru too.

It was always interesting to see the backs of work. Wonderful work!!

Deborah Coombs said...

Wow. I love all the details in this. And my vote is to keep her somewhat transparent.

What a marvelous mixed media piece! I like how the background shows through her bodice.

She's so cool! I wish I could do crafts like that. I'll just stick to my camera for now! :)

Oh, I am loving the finished piece! Well done, as usually Alissa!

Theresa Mahoney said...

Oh, and I like her as is. Gives it more of a supernatural kind of flare, I think.

Alissa, At first I thought this was a painting until I read your post. I think this is quite creative and inspiring. For next month's A2Z challenge I'm going to do art sketching through the alphabet, which is a big undertaking because I have done very little drawing over the years and I NEVER considered myself an artist. I'm doing something that inspires me and an ability I hope to spring to life. Thanks for hosting the WW fun. Feel free to stop by to link up with me today! ;)

I love this! It's so creative - and it tells a story/conveys a message. Well done!

I like the more ghost-like look, I think. It gives it more of an "every woman" kind of feel. (Not sure if that's what you were going for, but that's what I took from it.) I absolutely love the clock detail. :)
