Paint with Gingersnaps

The Gingersnaps challenge this Wednesday is to use paint. On this piece there are a number of different paints used. There are first patches of  Terra paint applied to create patches of texture. While still wet dampened stamps were pressed into it to create further texture. When dry acrylic paint was then added over the background. You can see where a cog mask was also used. Some metal was passed through a cuttlebug and sprayed with Adirondak  spray ink. The wings were painted with acrylic and then lightly stroked with a pale precious metal colour that creates a subtle sheen. Around the edges and over some high spots Ferro gold iron was applied. Croco clear paint was added to the heart once the purple acrylic was dry and the surface of this has a subtle crackle on it. The backing paper has been painted with acrylics too.

A Bit of Bling

What a great challenge we have in store for you this month over on SCD. This is Carol's brainwave and great fun it is too! These torsos are about the size of an ATC so not too daunting. I really enjoyed playing with this and this is my contribution. Can't wait to see what the rest of the design team have come up with. And also really exciting we have a new design team member, Artyjen. How cool is that!!! A great favourite of many of us and it is just so exciting she has agreed to join us. WELCOME!

Been away last week so I am trying to catch up with my postings. It will be similar next week too as again I will be away with my girls in London. This is my tag for SCD this week to include brown, orange and blue. This was great fun to make with all the terra and ferro paint in the background. Hope to see your creations on this theme.
