The Senses



This is my attempt at the Senses. Her name is Fleur. A mixed medium piece. She is stamped, embossed and has flowers that I cut and stained. She has a book in her center of flowers. I scanned her so she's a little hard to see. See: I took a different way of looking at my art to try something new. Touch: The fiber the dimensional papers, beads are the tactile elements. She's also on a background that I used modeling paste through a stencil. Smell: I have used tea and coffee for stains in the past, but this time I used herbal teas (pomegranate, and Berry Zinger), and added a little pink food coloring to enhance her. While I was working I was surrounded by the sweet fruity fragrance. Taste: of course I drank a cup of tea while working! Hear: would be the sounds of my tools. The heat gun her body is stamped and embossed. The sound of the hammer attaching her arms legs and book with eyelets.
