Altered Head(s)

This was a challenge! Altered bodies ... no problem ... swap a leg here, swap an arm there or something like this but altered heads (heads and shoulders only)? Oh dear .... at first I really struggled to get MY head around the challenge set by Debs for the first Art 'n' Soul swap this year: You can alter your head(s) in any way you like. But remember, 100% digital is not allowed.
Format: TRITYCH ATC
Once I had organised myself I then managed to ruin two pieces just before completion ... this was definitely not planned! So what you see here is plan C .... I created an ATC Tryptich where the middle part is split into two halfs and opens out to the side. The base was cut from relatively strong white card and then covered with 7 Gypsies paper (actually all patterend paper is from 7 Gypsies). For the outside I stamped the paptterned paper with a stamp from Impression Obsession which I embossed with mirror gold embossing powder. For the 'topper' I stamped an image from Lynne Perrella and layered it on patterend paper. As adornment I chose some blings and a little plastic flower ... this topper extended the front part a little bit .... For the closure I attached a woven wool ribbon which is closed with safety pin and book screw
.... and I gained a little bit more space for the inside decorations (lol). To create the inside I stamped and embossed all three sides ....
... the left and right side with PaperArtsy stamps and the middle with a component stamp from Tim Holtz. The next step was the decoration .... The eye from the Graphics Fairy ... coloured with Koh-i-noors ... behind the alteration wheel cut with a Sizzix die-cut and heat-embossed while the alteration letters on the right hand-side are from BoBunny

For the middle part I stamped again an image from Lynne Perrella, cut it out and embellished it with hook, circle and bling

Have a great weekend, Petra.

Great job- loving the great job you did with the head image- love the red jewels to glitz up the colors!

Ooh, I can see them today, Petra - must've been my laptop, sorry. Great idea to use the LP stamps - definitely a bit 'oddball'. Love the gold embossing and the inside of your triptych. Strange challenge. Have a great weekend x
