I'll be entering this card for the following challenges:-
- Simply Less Is More - Challenge No.223 - it's One Layer Card week with the theme of WATER
- As You Like It - FAVOURITE LAND OR SEA (and why) - well, who DOESN'T love a cruise?
Yesterday, I was crafting with my lovely pal (and neighbour - so, no long journeys involved here!), Sally. First stop was to Michaels for some canvases - they were 60% off!!! Second stop was Chili's for a lunch special! Then it was on with the crafting ...
|Ready to roll!|
|Mine, just starting with the Bleeding Art Tissue|
|Sally's ready to get cracking|
|We set them aside to dry! and admired the view whilst we were at it!|
And here's how they looked when I left on the long walk home!
|Not entirely sure it's finished - think I'll sleep on it ....|
|I coloured the edges too|
- Pink/yellow/purple acrylic paints rolled across my canvas
- Bleeding Art Tissue - cut roughly in to round and oval shapes
- Water and a paint brush - to attach the B.A.T.
- Tweezers to remove the B.A.T.
- Moulding paste, iridescent pink mica powder and Distress Re-Inker, picked raspberry applied through a Tim Holtz tyre track stencil using an old credit card
- Pink/yellow/green glow paints applied around the edges using a baby wipe
- Images from Stamplorations/Tim Holtz/Fiskars and Inks ... D.I.'s picked raspberry/dusty concorde/spiced marmalade and Ranger Archival watering can inks.
- Polyurethene spray sealant
Sadly, Sally decided that the B.A.T. technique was not for her and was ready to chuck it in the bin, so I brought it home with me to continue ... from this
to this ..... so far!
Materials used (after leaving Sally's)
- More B.A.T. in gold/blue/green
- Water and paint brush - to apply the B.A.T.
- Gesso - to tone down the edges since Sally had put a coat of white paint over the top before conceding it was going to take a good few coats to cover it up.
- Metallic gold and pearl acrylic paints brayered over the top to bottom and left to right, to give it an extra dimension and sheen and to assist in sealing the water based stain
- Using a baby wipe I coloured the edges using green, pearl and metallic gold acrylic paint
It now has a lovely greenish overall colour scheme and a smart pearly metallic sheen - I've returned it to Sally and (thankfully) she likes it .... a re-SULT! Truthfully? I almost think I prefer the simplicity of Sally's!! How weird is that? Now Sally can say she's a mixed media artist!
Have a great weekend all
