ArtUnraveled Technique Fatbook

I haven't made fatbook pages in a few years. Now I remember why! It takes forever!
It's a techniques fatbook from ArtUnraveled. You are supposed to show a technique that you learned at ArtUnraveled. I took a "Stenciled Self Portrait" class from Judy Wise last year. It was my favourite class ever, so I thought I'd do that. Yikes.
I had to make 30 backgrounds, then paint on the flesh, then cut out the dresses and glue them down, then stencil each one!!! Then I finished them with a beeswax coating.
Remind me not to do this again :)I forgot to take pictures of them when they were finished. I kept this one because of the blob on the nose. I actually quite like it and plan to mount it in wood and put it up on the wall!
You can see the piece that I made in Judy's actual class here.

After last year's fat book, I knew I wouldn't have time this year. It looks like a great page - I'm actually having pangs about missing it this year.

Wow, wow, wow! It's a good thing you didn't actually stop and think about all of the work that this would be. Otherwise we wouldn't have had the pleasure of seeing the end result which is brilliant!

You are like me...a glutton for punishment. Although I have to admit, it came out wonderfully!

I have a day off today. I'm going to go sew something in your honor!
