I tore the edges of a piece of gold tissue paper and a piece of mulberry paper and glued them to the cover. The darker center is a piece of textured wallpaper that I sponged the same as the cover; then highlighted it with an 18k Gold Krylon pen. I added the gold eyelets to this and then glued it on. The buttons where painted gold before being glued on.
Next I painted a shipping tag and then stamped the words onto it. I added some fibers to the tag and attached the tag to the cover with gold brads. I cut the prongs off of the brass key hole, placed a piece of black felt in the back of it and glued it on.
I also have 3 more ATC’s from the WILD Flower series. Here they are:
WILD Flowers 4
WILD Flowers 5
WILD Flowers 6
And finally, I had some time last week to paint a couple of pieces of fabric. These are fat quarter size.
I started with a piece of PFD and laid it on a piece of plastic. I then sprayed it with water getting it good and damp. Then I spread the paints on with a wet bristle brush. I was not real happy with the areas where I had painted green so I went back over it with the blue to soften it up. I really didn’t have any idea of what I wanted from this piece when I did it. I will probably just cut it into smaller pieces.
This next piece also is PFD fabric. I stretched it on a frame and dampened it before painting. I started with chartreuse and pretty much got it all blended together. Then I stroked on the green letting it blend more in some places than others. The sky portion was sprayed on (hence the splatters).
This is going to be the background for a small wall hanging that I am working on. So stay tuned and there will be more pictures to come hopefully…..
