Good morning. The PaperArtsy challenge this week is all about things in miniature & yet again, there was incredible inspiration from all the designers. I had a few ideas, none of which I’ve had time to make, but yesterday I came up with this, my first ATB………………
The block was made from kraft card, using a WRMK board, which I borrowed from a friend to try out. Very easy to make boxes with it, but scoring heavy weight card irritated the carpal tunnel in my left hand & I don’t like the ‘link the two sides together’ closure – sorry, can’t think how to describe it. Anyway, I still want the ATB dies. I painted this one – it’s the smallest size ATB, btw – with black gesso & set it aside.
I created a masterboard following Leandra’s series of YouTube videos, using a variety of Fresco paints & a brayer.
I added various colours, including Orchid, Turquoise, Caribbean Sea, Cheesecake & Guacamole………..
Then stamping with assorted PA stamps, including Lin Brown & Ellen Vargo sets……………..
I painted the Lin Brown owl from & sat him in flowers I’d cut from the masterboard with the Tim Holtz Tattered Floral die……..
I glued the ATB to a spool I’d painted with black gesso & Fresco Old Gold, then I sanded it & added Little Black Dress Fresco to the sanded areas……
That’s it, thanks for looking. I’d like to enter this into the PaperArtsy challenge.
