Oh my …. my blog was mad busy yesterday… maybe i should write about strictly more often! Ah well back to the usual sedate number of visitors today I suspect. I’m actually off work today with the poorly princess who is sporting a high temperature and horrible cough. Hopefully a day of snoozing and snuggles and she will be on the mend quickly. So I can at least blog early on in the day.
I missed a month or so of Lindsay Masons ATC swap but I joined in again in September and here are my ATC’S with the theme of masquerade.
The first one I used a scrap of corrugated card that I distressed, gessoed and painted with fresco finish paints. I used some stamps to add pattern and then added the Byron quote. The butterfly was painted and then has some shimmery ink added on top to make it shine. I mounted it onto a white ATC and then doodled to finish it off.
The second is a simple quote stamped (darkroom door) then onto an acrylic ATC I stamped the Paperartsy Hot Picks image in stayzon. I then added some colour to the back using Promarkers.
Then I fixed them together with a little bit of sewing.
The third one…
The background was made with paints, mainly fresco finish paint. I used stamps and stencils to create the patterns.
I then hand drew the masquerade mask in black Indian ink. Then I added the glass gel bead medium to it carefully so that it was only on the mask. Once it dried this created a lovely texture and shine for the mask.
Loved making these. Looking forward to seeing what I get in return.
I am also entering this last one into the More Mixed Media Challenge as I’ve used orange in the background of the ATC.
