The idea of the lesson was to glue everything down with gesso or matte media, and it would all be a uniform color (except the face(s), which were photographs in the original).  Then take paints and highlight areas/objects.

...but I never follow directions.  I was skeptical about the 3-D-ness of the project at first, but it's growing on me, and there are parts of it I like, and parts I would certainly do differently...

I'm considering her my "craft muse" and will probably hang her somewhere in my craft room, eventually.

I love the cluster of roses at her right eye - elegant way to tie the color scheme together. I also love the subtle shadow over her left eye from the flower, really draws the 3D together. That's such a piqued, enticing expression on her face.

I find with mixed media incorporating softer colors it helps to go with uniform or at least subtly gradating textures, like metallics, gloss, and silk together. Helps the 3D flow better and you can incorporate a wider range of shapes without any particular one breaking the flow. The lace backing and top-right rose cluster do that really well.

There is a fine line between genius and insanity. I play cat's cradle with it.

I really like the background above her head-is it textured and painted gesso?  Way better than a "flat" background to tie all the other elements together!
