Life as a puzzle with Rubber Dance


 Hello my dear crafty friends!

Irit is here and this time I am going to share my Rubber Dance new project  that was made a tribute to trends.
I am not a very trendy girl when it comes to outfits or home decoration; but when I craft I try to incorporate a few of  latest trends as usually people are looking for them. But then  it's always my own take of those trends.
So here are some trends I tried to show on this altered recycled puzzle trio:
Pink and Aqua colors- but I made them more saturated
Recycling- this one is done " as is": the puzzle pieces were found in the  trash and I really up cycled them to this art piece.
Chipboards: I used at least one chipboard over each puzzle piece, but I altered them a lot as a usual trend is to leave them bare, whitewash or inked a bit.
Mixed Media art trend- ongoing one: I tried to make it " lighter";  not to cover all pieces with a heavy layer of gesso, masks, mists and inks. Just to use stamps, some inks and embossing powders over this  piece.
It still counts as Mixed Media, but in my own really light way.

And now for some close- ups.
Each puzzle piece was stamped with a one main encouragement sentiment from Something Wonderful set with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with black fine detail powder. Then I stamped Lace background around the sentiment with the same ink and white fine detail embossing powder.   Then I added a few of Collage elements stamps with black embossing again over the white lace image.Both powders work as emboss resist technique when you ink/color over them; so I used a mix of distress Ranger inks to make the color mix over the pieces.


The chipboards were glittered with blue glitter embossing powder and glued over the pieces.



I made the holes with my forgotten hole punch and tied some vintage  ribbons to connect the puzzle pieces.
Some random pearls are my only extra embellishment over this piece as I wanted the stamps to shine and not to be covered with layers of flowers and leaves and swirls.
I hope you got some inspiration from my art piece and see you again!
