Another Blog Post - anything to get out of doing the ironing ......
Back in March I took part in an ATC swap with the theme of 'Shrine'. Well, to me a shrine is a box and as I was making 9 of these and many of them were going abroad, I couldn't go down that road! So, after a lot of deliberation, this was my effort. I little bit of Paris and a little bit of Italy :) And, as a bonus, I learnt a lot about Mona Lisa and Leonardo di Vinci whilst looking up info on Wikipedia!
In the same ATC group, for July the theme was '2'. The number 2 had to be somewhere on the ATC and there had to be 2 of 'something'. I went with the flowers as I already had a load of these stamped and painted with alcohol inks from a previous project, I just added some Glossy Accents to them. The background is painted randomly with Ecoline water colours smooshed around, the number 2 was the same water colour paint dabbed through a stencil (I didn't want a harsh edge so let it bleed a bit) then a bit of random splattering and a bit of stamping. Don't you just love 'random'! I seem to do quite a bit of it ...!
Thanks for stopping by.
