I have my other two birthday cards for my mom to show you. Just waiting for the wet weather to leave so I can take the photos. I may need yet ANOTHER camera battery. Darn It!
I also have a steampunk spoon to show you. We have a swap going on over at Art For The Creative Mind. You should google it and check it out. My link feature is giving me trouble or I would give you the link for the group. It is a Yahoo group. I never did any art in that style so it was a real stretch for me. Everyone should take time to go out of their comfort zone and explore. Which brings me to image transfers. There are so many techniques to use. Aileens Tacky Glue, Packing Tape, Lemon scented Pinesol but I am going to be trying Gesso on Canvas. You spread Gesso on your canvas about the thickness of peanut butter. Place your image on top then leave it alone for a full 24hrs. You can't touch it before hand. Spray it with water then start rubbing the paper off with your fingers. This will take a little bit but it is so worth it! If some of the image doesn't transfer thats okay-we like it that way! Give it a try. Google or search U-tube for other image transfer directions. Enjoy your day! I'm off to play with the kiddies. Love, Elle
