Eco Art by mayah(c)2018 "Squirrel's Delight" 7.5" X 9"
This art project started out with the little picture of the squirrel cut from my current month of February 2018 calendar. I thought she was so cute, with her gaze right into the camera lens, that I couldn't wait for the year to expire before using her picture in an art project.
Yesterday I went to my local thrift store and found this great frame. It's heavy, made out of resin, with designs of leaves and stems and seed pods; I thought that it would be great to display some of the seed pods I've collected from around the neighborhood. Got it home and immediately thought that the squirrel photo would fit right in.
The squirrel is backed with cardboard and layers of white glue (dries clear)*, coated with acrylic to make it strong yet flexible; she sticks out away from the burlap paper background for a 3-D effect. The seed pods are coated with AcriGlaze** as preservative.
