The Multi-layered Man

This weeks theme on the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge is "Handmade Background".  I wanted to have a play around with layers on this piece, so while creating the handmade background with Claudine Hellmuth paints, I inserted 3 images of the man at different stages in the process.  The framing also plays on the idea of layers - at first glance it looks like the central panel is mounted on a larger panel covered with script, whereas the script is a wooden frame and the central panel is sunk into it.

Our ever-generous sponsor Simon Says Stamp is offering a $50 gift voucher as the prize again this week! The winner will be chosen at random from those who enter the challenge, so why not give it a try? At the very least why not head over to the Challenge Blog to see how the other members of the design team have interpreted this weeks theme! :)

Dan, you are so clever! I love your piece and its visual depth. The multi layered man is a great idea and I love your idea of that! Great colors and shapes, etc. in your various stages of his "creation". The frame is the perfect complimentary element for your multi layers man. It's a fantastic piece! <3 Candy

Love your idea of adding the man at differing stages of the creative process, inspired. Great colours and shades create a fabulous background Dan and I love the script on the frame. Great depth to this piece. Tracy x

Very clever effect - the central panel really does look like it is 'proud' of the script frame rather than behind it.
