Thank you for coming back to look at my blog. I started this blog sure that I would be able to do it at least once a week, but since I started it I had bronchitis, then a tooth that should have been a normal extraction led to surgery that then got infected. I am doing loads better but am now in the middle of dance festivals with my 12 year old daughter. So needless to say I have not done as much works as I would have liked or participated in challenges. Hopefully after the next few weeks I will have more time. Enjoy what I have put up and I would love to hear your comments
This is a canvas I have done for the challenge. I was actually trying the background technique. I Painted the canvass the attached the image, which I downloaded from Adopt a Ancestor. I then covered the parts of the image that I did not want covered with Vaseline. I then took a second colour of paint and painted over the entire canvass again. When this was dry I then rubbed the paint off that was over the Vaseline. Got this technique from an amazing book called Collage discovery workshop by Claudine Hellmuth.
This is a ATC I made for a challenge on the Gingersnap page. The paper is from K & Company and the images come from a book I bought years ago by Artsy Collage. I like the old fashioned images and it brought to mind the ladies from the past who would have done these jobs to make money for their families
