An ATC and a Skinny!

I feel so good now I’ve had an hour up in my room and had a chance to play again… art soothes the busy mind, the weary body and the restless soul. Not a quote, merely how I feel right now! I like playing with text pages and colours, so I made my backgrounds by scribbling watercolour pencils onto torn out dictionary pages. I then brushed water or floor wax over them to spread the colour. I adhered these to ATCs and a pre-cut skinny. Then I taped down some punchinella (sequin waste) and sponged gesso over them around the edges. Stamping was done with black Stazon ink and I cut words I liked from another page(s). I made the asian girl a flower for her hair with white 3D paint by Anita’s and popped a couple of orange seed beads into it before it dried. Ah!!!!

This is my Skinny for Created by Hand (‘orange/skinny’) and ArtyGirlz (‘Eras’) as she’s from Ria’s Victorian plate and the beautiful ‘Eyes’ ATC is from Third Coast RS (thank you Val!).

Tracey has given me an award which I shall blog tomorrow – thank you so much!
