|my scribbled acetate, ready to roll!, a quick spritz and .... apply my card and VOILA!!|
|Three backgrounds - once dry they're ready to trim and turn in to cards ...|
- Random sized piece of thick acetate
- Two pieces of 300 gsm card cut to more or less the same size + one off cut of Rymans smooth white card - taken hastily because I wasn't done with this technique. Left to right in the photo are the 1st, 2nd and 3rd "print" - so you can see the changes as I tried slightly different pressure/water
I LIKE it and will probably have another go at some time - sadly, a couple of my marvy's are dried out but, never fear, I have some much underused marvy's the other side of the pond (taking up storage space) so I may simply bring them home!!
On to my next project. Clare (Miscanthuscrafts) has been setting us weekly projects to help fill our time (and lack of mojo) during the summer vacation and this week the project is an affirmation charm ...... regular readers will recall that Clare supplied us all with (roughly) the same sort of kit, to ensure that each participant could make each challenge. She even went to the trouble of recording a video of her thought process through each challenge too - this one came with a warning regarding the colour fastness (or rather, lack of) with the piece in question. Armed with this information I too decided to go down the gesso route and took my pink bird .... complete with it's slightly strange single and irregular green stripe!, and applied gesso
|Two coats and STILL quite pink!|
So, I took my white acrylic paint and whacked on two coats ....
|Guess what? STILL pink!!!|
Guess I'm going with a slightly pink theme with this project then!?!?! Watch this space to see how my little tweetie pie ends up!
Happy Thursday - see y'all tomorrow for the Friday Funny
