NGS - Book Review

The NGS group is holding a Book Review. The book chosen was "Texture Effects" by Nancy Curry. Attached is my first 'class' on Resist Technique. This is the size of an ATC using Stampin' Up stamps and inkpad onto white gloss. I can't wait to do more.

NGS - Nov Art Lottery

The theme for this months Art Lottery is 'Spirit'. I have done this ATC using a Micro Art Frame, embossed with Meltz Thick Embossing powder (Amethyst). I them printed the quote onto acetate and stamped onto it and adhered the acetate to the back of the frame. It is easy but effective.

Valentine Pop-up

Miniature ATC is hosting a Valentine Pop-up Swap. The ATC is to measure 1.5" x 2.5" when folded up. I have chosen the 'Waterfall card' for this. I have used the traditional colour of red with small stamps to embellish it with. The picture shows all the layers of the pop up. Even though it is small, it was so much fun to do. Thanks Donna for coming up with the swap and hosting it.

CBA - Texture Challenge

Chunky Book is hosting fortnightly challenges, the first is 'Texture". I started with a blank 4" square blank canvas. For the texture I used Impasto Medium through Gyprock tape for the left hand top corner, down the right hand side I used crumpled tissue paper, and also a cuttlebug border die cut, in the middle I placed a skeleton leaf. I let this dry, then coated it with 2 layers of black gesso. For the colour, I used Pefect Pearls in Pewter, Blue Patina & Green Patina. Also Adirondack Acrylics in Cranberry & Denim & Adirondack Metallics Dabber in Pearl. I embellished it with a die cut key and German scraps. I am happy with the result and can't wait for the next challenge.
