Torso Swap

I decided to exchange "torsos" within a yahoo group because you only have to do 3. I don't like doing 10 or 12 of something and if it's online, sometimes you never get back what you put in.

Still it intrigued me...so I joined. I made 4 torsos cause I got inspired. Here are the pics of the front and back of each one.









I used some of Jane's techniques of bubble wrap and pencil on this torso.





I used canvas on this torso. I cut a torso shape and painted it and sewed it on a cardboard shape of a torso. I love the feel of this one.





Collage with shiny magazine pages and then I added the flower as a tail feather. To add a little blending to the body I "dripped" paint down the petals. I like it :}



This one is a pic of the front only as the back is the same :}



I bought these awesome digital collage sheets from a blog "Free Backgrounds and other Blog Stuff by Itukpilli" (that's a mouthful ha ha) Itukpilli is Finnish and does beautiful Marie type backgrounds and stuff so be sure and check her out.

Happy Father's Day.....I know it will be a busy day for you Mom's out there :}

Loved seeing the one in person. I think it was the first one you did with Jane's technique?

Did you print out Ituppiki's backgrounds? Not sure how you used her backgrounds on the torso.

You are so productive!
