have a seat

I was finally able to steal a few moments to do some artwork again...actually I HAD to steal those moments because projects I signed up for are now due. This one is for a 3 dimensional ATC with the theme of "Have a Seat". I created this little winter "sculpted ice chair" in honor of my daughter who lives in Alaska and calls me daily with reports of falling snow and freezing weather. I used vellum for my chair to create the look of ice. I love how you can see through it to the background.
This view from the top allows you to see the layered texture of the ATC background that is a base of paper with layers of impressed wax mounted onto sturdy mat board
Side view of chair.
Detail of the snowflake embraced by downy feathers nestled on the chairs seat.
Detail of intricately "sculpted" back of the chair.
It was a fun little project to do and my little chairs will be on their way out of here tomorrow. Next on to some little banners!
