Triplets - Dawn Heald

Happy Weekend,

It's Saturday again and I hope you have 
a nice weekend planned!
Not sure what we are expecting weatherwise
but I'm sure its bound to involve
some of the wet stuff!

This is our last post of the week and
today Dawn is here to show you 
what she has been doing....

Dawn says.....
Hello how's everyone doing? For our topic
 this week I decided to make a set of
 ATC's (Artist Trading Cards) as it's been
 ages since I last made any. I also had
 a play with some of the new Liquid Pearls in stock.

To make a background, squeeze some 
Liquid Pearls onto a craft mat and use a 
brayer to apply to white card. Repeat for
 each colour in turn, building up layers.
Finish with a light layer of white gesso 
applied with a brayer.

Cut black card into three pieces measuring
 3.5" × 2.5"

When background is dry cut off a section
 to be used for the ATC's.

Add some stencilling and Stamping
 to build up flat layers.

Cut into three pieces slightly smaller
 than the black pieces of card and glue
 each to the black card.

Stamp, colour and cut out three owls.
Attach owls with foam pads.

Print or stamp twit twoo and stick under  owls.
Add some white paint dots around cards.

The liquid pearls does make
 a great paint and the sheen on it is lovely.
 The white paint layer brings it together well. 
Hope you like!

Yes we do like Dawn, thank you!
What do you think?
I'd never thought of using Liquid Pearls
like that.
