Okay! This is the final version of Song in the Sky 3.
The image you see here is a digital composite of all of the different elements that I created with real mediums. The final project is a big bruiser at 24 x 32 inches, and I knew it was going to be very difficult to scan with my 8.5x11 flatbed. So before I taped and glued everything together, I scanned in each piece and assembled it like a puzzle in Photoshop.
The deep background in blue-violet was done with acrylic and little star and moon sequins. There's a freshwater pearl up on the top right.
The middle background was done with watercolor and salt.
On the original finale, the birds' halos are made of stick-on plastic pearls. I couldn't get quite the effect that I wanted with Photoshop, so they have glowy nimbuses for this version. And honestly... I like it both ways.
This project took me about fifty hours all together, but I spread it out over quite a spate of time.
