What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday: Being Brave
I have been itching to find a photograph that would lend itself well to that newly acquired ripe persimmon. This postcard is from a fellow swapper, Fabricfriend, who uses it as a business card. I just love this photo of these women, all smartly dressed donning winter coats, stockings with shoes and each casually holding a rifle rather than a hand bag.
· How to cover up straight edges and corners: how much of them to cover up, how to cover them up without it looking like that’s what I’m doing.
· Covering up parts of the photo. The “traditional me” envisions those old photograph albums filled with black and white snap shots held in place with white photo corners. Why would you want to lose any part of a picture?
In my search for different ways to add texture I discovered Fiber Paste by Golden. I spread a thin layer of paste with a pallet knife onto waxed paper. Once dried, I peel the it from the paper and store it. Here I brushed it with the Distress paint dabbers and sprinkled flecks of mica.
Brave, the perfect word for these women, don't you think?
