I am so enthralled with Nancy at Crowabout. She now has a group and she is going through step-by-step to put together a collage. First we started with building a background. I made 4, but this one is the one I went forward with.
Then I added the border. Can't wait to see what we do next!
Here's my take on the corozon swap I signed up for. My partner mentioned she likes vintage, metals, etc. So I used some old copper, rusty screen and wire, metal heart and a tape transfer all on hand painted watercolor paper. Hopefully she'll like it.
Helga (Artchix) has an art challenge on her blog and there will be 9 challenges total. Here's mine for the first one - circles and dots. What I used from left to right starting top left - bottom of stickles bottle, foam dabber, small dabber, prescription medicine bottle top, button, sharpie marker, zig marker top, handmade foam dots, end of a brush dots, stickle dots, sequin waste, prescription medicine bottle bottom.
Here are the 2 postcards going out - 1 to Canada and the other to Finland. I signed up for this swap because I had just made my two mushroom stamps from foam so I figured why not? The first one I painted with interference green and the other with intereference blue. Also used micaceous iron oxide for the shadowing and souffle gel pens. All that made it very psychedelic looking so I named them that.
This is for a handmade bookmark swap. At my local stamp club monthly meeting we played with shaving cream and ink to make marble designs on paper. We used these sticks to clean the shaving cream off the paper... well I loved the look so much I saved it for this project. I also used a stamp, packing tape transfer and markers. I hope my swap partner likes!
One thing I need to learn to do is take a photo of what I start with... This was the cover for W magazine. It was Uma Thurman. The dress is covered by 3 different stickles (2 distressed). My partner is also the swap hostess!
