The lesson this time was student's choice, transfers and pop-ups. I will leave the transfer to later but this is my pop-up page and I have to admit I had way too much fun with these lips. They open and close with the book pages. The tutorial for the origami lips I found on YouTube HERE, thanks to kazuko0326. The background is sprayed gold and copper paint using a mask that is a computer keyboard protector. Music paper sprayed with Indian Red glimmer mist and gold paint is torn and stuck along the bottom, cardinal Christmas ribbon along the top and plastic leaves and pearl beads tied with ribbon for the mistletoe decorate the page.
Now for the transfer...............sigh!!!!!
I have never achieved a good transfer yet. This one used gel medium. Followed the instructions and the picture transferred but then disappeared when dry. I will try another method over the coming weeks to see if I can get something reasonable. Elizabeth gave us plenty of methods so I am sure I will get one eventually.
