|Creating ATC's for WOYWW Anniversary|
Wednesday, May 28, 2014
Time to celebrate WOYWW's blogiversary!
Celebrating 5 (!!!!) years; that’s 260 Wednesdays of peeking in on other’s creative spaces! I'd like to say that I have been around that long when actually I am gearing up for my own 1st anniversary for this blog July 7th.
Here is my work desk covered with ATC’s in progress for this week’s swap. I had a hard time coming up with a design then worried if some would prefer the Flower Flourish I had been creating for other swaps. Admittedly, I am a people pleaser and I wasn't sure if it was expected that I would stick to the flowers so I made about 10 of each.
I like the idea of scrapbooking but for the most part, don’t like the look of most of the pages I see. I wanted to learn how to incorporating paint and texture to my pages rather than using die cuts. I stumbled up Get Artsy: Applying mixed media techniques to scrapbook pages over at Big Pictures. This is my page for week 1: Using gesso
The process was to gesso the page, color the background using Gelatos then rub in the color. Ghosting the background was done by laying down a stencil then using a baby wipe to wipe away the color.
Email me if you would like to trade ATC’s. *Let me know in your email if you prefer the butterfly or the flower: firstname.lastname@example.org
