Layered World / Accordion Book

click image to enlarge
So many artists are crazy about layers these days! I think there´s more to it than layers simply looking good to so many artists. Maybe it´s because layers are a kind of visual equivalent to our lifes. Talking on handy while driving in your car, while listening to the news on radio, answering your daughters´question about something ..while trying to keep spilling a cup of hot coffee. Modern lifestyle!

..this lifestyle would make me nervous!
And too many layers in my pieces make me nervous too.

The many layers in my new accordion book are close to the limit for my taste...

 

 For me it ´s more elaborate I can express all I have to say with one layer!  
 

Nevertheless, I must admit that it is fun to build up layer by layer!

I want to enter it to this week´s

  14. Beautiful work! I'm never sure about layers - I love seeing them online (and in person) but whenever I try to use them it just feels wrong. Well, not always. But often. And then I feel all inferior and guilty because I can't do layers properly. But that doesn't last long, thank goodness :)

    Anyway, happy PPF!

  19. Ich finde es wunderbar, so viel zu entdecken zu haben! Einfach wunderbar, für mich können es nicht genug Layers sein ;) aber ich weiss genau was Du meinst, mir geht es nämlich genauso, ich denke aber das kommt mit der Zeit, dass man soviel Techniken kennt und anwenden will, die müssen ja nun auch irgendwo hin ;) ne Spass beiseite ich liebe Dein Buch sehr, besonders die aufgenähten Blumen und Herzen gaaaanz besonders schön!!!

  21. I love layers - good for you stepping out of the comfortable place and trying something different. I think your little book is wonderful

  22. I go through stages when I like using layers and I used to use them all the time... but at the moment I find that I like simple lines and paint ... these make me think maybe it is time to push back into some layers again...xx

  23. Ich verstehe dich nur zu gut. Mein tägliches Multi - Tasking wird mir auch manchmal zuviel, weil die kleinen *wichtigen* Momente einfach einem vorbei rasen. Die kreativen Stunden schaffen dann den Ausgleich dazu, ohne Telefon und den Rest der Welt. Eine tolle Collage hast du geschaffen. Die Herzchen sind für mich der Ruhepunkt und auch die Hintergrundfarbe ist fantastisch. Eine sehr gelungene Kreation, die bei mir ganzjährig stehen würde.
    Schönes Wochenende, Susi (:o)
