Balloon Girl

This piece was inspired by an artsy vintage photo of a little angel girl in a balloon.  The background was created by adhering vintage papers and ephemera to the canvas before painting and then adding homemade paper I had created to represent clouds.  The subject was created from layering fabric, cut and selected according to value in order to create depth.  This technique lends an almost 3-dimensional effect to the image.  The balloons were also created from fabric.  String, homemade paper beads and decorative metal brads were added for embellishment.  15"x30"
