Brown-Eyed Girl and Lonely Heart

These are the final Rock Candy projects that I made for the month of June. "Brown-eyed Girl" features girl #31 from the Girly Girl image cd. Buttons by the shot, a rusty french key and rayon ribbon are all Rock Candy products.

This image from Rock Candy's Manly Man CD looks like the loneliest fellow in the world. The base of "Lonely Heart" is a canvas panel collaged with tissue and acrylic paint. Rock Candy products include: Image CD, silver foil tape, metallic rub-ons, angel wings, and metal corner protectors. I ran the metal tape through a Cuttlebug folder and applied gesso to the tape. After the gesso dried, I used metallic rub-ons to emphasize the design. Rub-ons were also used around the edges of the piece.

Check Rock Candy's gallery in the weeks ahead as another design team member will be featured during July.

Both are fabulous. Love especially the first one. It's really beautiful and the use of the rusty key just adds that perfect texture.
