Three layers of painted pexiglass

I made this and gave it to my son for his birthday. I used some angelina foil and acrylics. It was a difficult task and a learning experience! First of all, I had to use a special glue made just for plexiglass that dried almost in an instant which left no room for mistakes. It has the consistency of water and evaporated into thin air because the lid wasnt tight enough when I closed it. ugh..need to buy another can..This was really hard to photograph because of light reflections. I plan on making another one in the future.

June 2010

I couldnt resist using a cd for my June page. I used a giant glass button for the centerpiece, and added embroidery, gold paint , and beads. Im not so sure I like my beading job... but I learned something from it, which is a good thing.The next time I bead , I know what not to do!

just a little peek

Im almost done with my June piece..... This one starts with another cd..I havent gotten the cd bug out of my system quite yet!

I painted some leaves and decorated them with more beads... and attatched them to the front!

I then placed the cds on the back, facing foward with Liquid Nails....( super strong stuff) Before attatching the cds, I painted the back with black acrylics to avoid reflections...

Beads and paint

I added my beads and paint to the front.

This is how I created " Four Flowers"

First.... I flipped my canvas over. I traced the size of the cds onto the back. I then carefully cut out the shapes using an exacto knife.
