The Art Creations Friday challenge is to use the image provided each week to create something.
I found them & their challenge by following the link on Chris Slater's blog (Rubbaluvva) & was totally inspired by her entry.
This is the image for this week's challenge.
I used a transfer technique (which is why the image is reversed) onto wet acrylic. Not sure if it worked properly, but I liked the effect.
I painted the base with acrylic paint (Lake Mist Dabber by Ranger). Whilst the paint was wet I burnished the printed image & left it to dry. A quick blast from my heat gun (to make sure it was thoroughly dry), then I spritzed the paper with water & began to gently rub off the paper, leaving the image behind on the paint.
I swept over the ATC with a thin cover of Distress Ink (broken china) & added a few word stickers by K&Company.
I stamped over this with an Anna Griffin swirl stamp using Archival Ink (Jet Black).
I coated the surface with clear gesso, both to add texture & to knock back the shine from the word stickers. Once dry, I added the finishing touches; highlights using an opaque white Inkssentials pen, pearls, a white eyelet & organza ribbon.
I like the soft faded misty feel to this piece.
