Strong J

Hello again my friends.

In last edition of Papeles y Más magazine, the editor asked part of the Design Team, which I'm honored to be part of, to make a special project using a foam tray.   Yes, a foam tray.
My first thought was to make the tray something else and recycle it, but I immediately changed my mind and wanted to use it as a tool and as an element in the project.

First I cut a piece that I used as a stamp.  Yes... it sounds crazy but this tray has these cool circles and lines so I used it as a stamp with different inks over canvas and over paper.


Not only I made a cool background stamping with it, but I also used the piece of foam and added it as another element in the project. 


The project is titled "Strong J".  I inspired in my neighbor friend who's been a tough girl through a lot... and she has made a great work... even though others can see her weak... she's not... nah nah nah.  So I also stamped this image that reminds me of her, first in the fabric as a guide and then in paper where I colored her, cut and attached to the project.


The canvas was then put over a frame covered with paper and cool butterfly stenciled image.  I added flowers and her initial.  I waited until her birthday to give it to her, and now I can share with you.


Hope you liked it... For me, this is her.  Strong J.
