Lost in the woods

We're well into the Autumn season with its crisp weather, falling leaves, and fading color. There's nothing I like better at this time of the year than walking the trails in the local area. The ground is littered with nature's debris. 


The base for this is a large 12" LP record that I painted white. I covered the edges with torn tissue paper from Finnabair. I added some stenciling using crackle paste and added a rusty Autumn color using watered-down liquid acrylic ink. There's also gold mica flakes scattered around. 





The focal point is an acrylic mould that I colored on the bottom with waxes and just highlighted the high points on top. It gives it a matte, almost velvety, look. She's layered with cheese cloth & sisal inside a clock dome ring giving it a wispy look and adding a natural element. I also added an ATC coin ring on top. 


I did the same technique with wax on the underside for the flowers. 



It shows the last vestiges of the season before winter settles in! 

I'm entering this at Mixed Media PlaceCountry View Challenges, and Arty Divas!
