...and some more

I've had lots of fun doing these.  I like anything a bit weird and I love bright colours.  They're so much harder to do than they look though!  I created all the background bits myself using Promarkers, acrylic paints and gel pens.

A BIt of Zetti

These are a couple of ATCs I've made for a Teesha Moore inspired swap on ATCs for All.  They're my first attemtps at anything like this, and I think maybe I've gone a bit OTT on the colour, but I had to put a bit of me in there too, and I do love colour!

Friendly Plastic and Mica Powders

This is a RAK for a friend.  I've used Friendly Plastic on a background which I've stamped in Versamark and covered with mica powders in various colours.  The butterfly is printed on acetate and shows up more in real life.  The word "Imagine" is stamped into Friendly Plastic.

It's a lot more colourful and shiny than it appears in the photo.

Funky Hair

These are for another swap on ATCs for All.  The backgrounds are created using inks, water spray, rubber stramping and acrylic paints.  I've used vintage images and given them funky hairstyles which I've drawn using coloured pencils, altered their makeup a bit also using coloured pencils, added some pen outlines and printed words.  These were great fun to do.

I think this one looks like Boy George!  (It's the makeup, I think).

More Found Poetry

These are some more found poetry ATCs I've made.  I love doing these.  They're a lot of fun.  (See post below for details of what found poetry entails).

The pictures are gesso image transfers.  I've used inks, acrylic paint, gesso, pens, gel medium, printed papers, paper flowers, gems, and the butterfly images are printed on acetate
