Hybrid Layout and Wearable Art

There is always a  story behind my mixed media layouts, this is our story! I always tell my boyfriend, "he shot me with a bullet full of love" not sure what it feels to be shot… I assume someone feels it all over, and that is exactly how he makes me feel. He has shot me with True love, Strength, Patience, Friendship, most importantly to love myself. I love him to death!

I completely created this 12x12 page on Photoshop. I created a gun brush, and also used some flourish, grunge and ink brushes. Then printed it on 140lb Canson water color paper. I have the Canon pro 9000 which allows me to print out sheets as big as 13x19.

I then added a picture of me and my boyfriend, ink, paint stickers, rub-ons, a bullet charm from a necklace I found at the dollar store, some wire material, distress ink, and some trim.

I went further and made myself some wearable art with this layout. I used to pieces of  Inkssentials Memory Glass  1 ½ x 1 ½, copper foil tape, heart and bullet charm, alcohol ink, flux, soldering iron, lead free solder and a jump ring. I will wear it with pride!
