I am working on my second ArtTag piece on the subject of Patterns. Must confess I drew a blank on this topic. The first piece was a groping in the dark piece and I hope Miriam will forgive me for the failed piece. Received an interesting piece from Harriett, which helped in the right direction.
This is as far as I've gotten so far: painted a dozen index cards in black acrylic. Affixed images of cigarette boxes on one side. On the other side, mouth images. Applied a coat of gloss medium to mouth image side to marry the cutouts to the index cards. Rubbed out air bubbles. The next step is smoke and cigarettes, which is where I am likely to make a mistake. This is one reason I am protecting the image layer with medium first. I am going to bring my WIP to Howard Munson's book arts salon. Thinking of pulling all together in a book structure of some sort.
