Having made 3 x 4's using Tim's papers last week I am determined to use up more of these wonderful pieces which are exact replicas of the larger 6 x 6 and 12 x 12 papers so you get just the same amount of detail.
I cut stiff card to adhere the 3x4s onto and
I have distressed the background paper using Stephanie Ackerman's technique found here.
I stamped the backgrounds with Andy Skinner's new texture stamps, finger painted some white acrylic paint lightly in places and added some tissue tapes.
I collected various pieces of ephemera and a die-cut together and again altered them with white acrylic paint and walnut stain distress ink and glued them to the backgrounds with glue n seal making sure I covered the tops of the pieces too.
After the cards were dry I took a gathered twigs distress marker and added shadow to the glued on elements .......
.... and I distressed and inked the edges.
These are just slightly larger than ATCs and I'm loving creating on this size.
Thanks for stopping by today.
hugs Brenda xxxx
These are so great! I'll have to search some out next time I'm online splurging! I love how you've pulled them all together.
Love these little artworks!
These look great Brenda! Altering the ephemera with paints and inks makes such a difference to the collage! The postcard bit looks just fantastic! And yes, they are a great size. Hey how about a swap at some point?
Being in the States I so can't wait to get back to my craft space....
These are wonderful Brenda.
