African sunset…

That’s the mood I was aiming for with this ATC for TMTA. I used the scrunched magazine technique (by Jeanette Blok, which I found on Willy’s blog today!) and stamped my tree onto tissue paper, adhering that to the ATC with gel medium. The tissue paper didn’t quite dry clear and transparent, but I tinted it with orange and yellow acrylic paint and some red oil pastel (Neocolours II):

Out of Africa...

I love the feel of this one – it’s quite waxy to the touch! Stamp from Personal Impressions, grunge from me!

  5. I have been very remiss and not stopped by for ages which is very silly of me because I do so enjoy your art Rosie. This one has got me all excited to run off and try a new technique. I’ve been doing lots of this in the past few days (it’s amazing what you can find on YouTube!). Well, I’ve just spent a happy few minutes back browsing through your older posts and enjoying my stroll around your gallery of latest works. By the way, it appears to be snowing in here – perhaps you’d best check the roof for holes…
