What's cheaper than a plastic bag? well- nothing. I did my project on a plastic bag. I also used paint, ugly buttons that I found, masking tape(to make a "base" for the paint), some cardboard, a cereal box, newspaper(for the woman's skin), one of those paper flowers people use for gift wrapping and brown wrapping paper.
I really tried to make my peice as colourfull and chearfull as possible. The girl in the front is not supposed to be someone special, but after I finished I thought she looks like French actress Virginie Ledoyen, and she definitely has star quality Wink
And here are some photos from the process.

Just a regular plastic bag...(this is actually the other side of the bag after I already started)

sticking masking tape around the image of the girl- to create a base for the paint.
a star...
buttons
some more buttons...
The womans face

Tada!


Hope you like Wink

Exceptional work- and thanks for the step by step look at your process and materials.

I think the process can inspire us craftsters to do our own thing even if the outcome may not come close to your outstanding results!

Fantastic! What a great medium to use, I would have never thought of that.

Also, I love her pose, and I really like her shirt/bustier thing!

I love this.

Your style is very similar to an old art class friend of mine from Finland.
