Cd quilt painting 2010

I decided to quit after making 12 of these cds... and place them on canvas with a little Angelina film.I realised that I put too much work into them and didnt want to have to cover parts! While joyfully creating these cds, I came up with another great way to use them in my artwork.I will be finished with the other cd painting very soon. I think I will start focusing on my BJP after that!

decorated bottle 2010

I love to decorate bottles of any kind. On this one I used baking clay, colored mosaic glass, crystal buttons , rhinestones, and gold film.

painted mirror 2010

I used tons of glitter and lenticular sheet circles for this one. Lenticular sheets is a material that changes image with the direction of light hitting it.

Another idea for cds

I just painted these with acrylics and jones metallic papers. Then I strung them together with fishing line and hanged it in my bathroom!

Only ten more to go... ( I need nineteen!) These are difficult to photograph, if anyone is interested, I can photograph each one separately in order to see more detail. If not, well we will have to wait for the end result!

Heres how im doing it

Cut out and ready to go!
I then stuck a cd behind the fabric, facing outward, and placed another piece of fabric behind that and stitched them together.

Then I decorated it with sequins and embroidery. After that, I carefully cut out the holes leaving a little black along the edges. I also carefully painted the edges of the circles to give it a cleaner look.

There were no instructions for this so I had to figure it out on my own.... First , I painted the traced outline of the cd. I then made circles to be cut out later.
Im not sure yet about how I plan to put them all together.

Here are some of my covered cds so far

I found this on the net

I love Cd's , they are sooo pretty! Someone created this wonderful wall hanging from old Cd's , fabrics , and embellished it with embroidery. There are holes cut out to let the Cd surface shine through. I couldn't resist the urge to create my own version of this clever work of art!
