Thanks everyone!  The layers are achieved by using double sided foam mounting tape. I buy a big roll of it and just cut it down to whatever dimensions i need for a project.  The cutout itself is from various types of scrap-booking paper, some is card stock, some is a little flimsier (it kind of all depends on finding the right color/texture/pattern in whatever type of paper I can).  She is made out of blocks of color as opposed to individual pixels.  I thought that would be better to show some dimension.

I love cutting things out of scrap-booking paper and knew that would lend itself well to this project.

I started out with a bit of pixel art so I could figure out all the colors I would need as well as what shapes to cut out.

I usually have some pretty cute company when I work.

I'm new to Crafster and this is my first challenge.  I had a lot of fun and I hope you like it!

That Lion King costume is absolutely amazing!  I had never thought of making a costume from the musical!

You can find cheap funnels at car supply stores (I bought one recently for 99 cents at Autozone) and just spray paint it silver.

Try Styrofoam.  They sell so many shapes at craft stores that you should be able to easily modify one to fit your needs.
