i somehow forgot to post this present I made for my dad's birthday!
I started with a box that my new Magic Mouse was shipped in and gesso'd the heck outta it! Then i layered on a couple of different types of text and music and over that put one of my new favorite tools - wax paper with paint. The image over that is a drawing i drew of my dad, like, um, 20ish years ago (thank god my mom kept a scrapbook of her own!) and scanned it into my computer then printed it out and made a packing tape image transfer of it (tutorial to come one of these days).
Around the inside edges of the box i glued down different little pieces from the Gauche Alchemy mixed media kit elements and various pieces of hardware i collected. And i discovered the BEST adhesive i have used yet from the Gauche Alchemy store: Omni-Gel Transfer Medium!
I have yet to use it as a transfer agent, but as an adhesive it ROCKS!!!!! WOW it holds all that on upside down and stuff!
The background matte is made of my other favorite technique - duct tape and acrylic paint
He liked it :)
