Farewell Summer

I'm sorry that I've been such a bad blogger for the last few months.  I've been working on various assemblage art but have not done as much art as usual.  I think my muse went on vacation!  I'm pleased to say the wheels are rolling again and I'm back to slapping around inks and paints with abandon again.

I produced my final three ATCs for a swap group I belong to and thought I'd post two of
them here.
Oh I do like to be beside the seaside......

 I loved making this, it was so much fun.  The lower portion of the card is base coated with sand medium, and then painted with Titan Buff paint.  The water is water soluble pastels and the sky is distress ink with a mask applied to create the cloud.
The beach hut is a wooden embellishment I found in my stash and the jandals (flip flops) are made from shrink plastic.  I found the idea on the net and copied :)

The final ATC below is stamped and painted and then dipped in UTEE and then in gold and silver flakes.  These were then rubbed back to remove all the loose flake before being redipped in UTEE.

Thanks for taking a look and sorry it's been so long!


  1. Great flip flops, and I do like the surface on your tag.

  2. So pretty. You have some nice blues mixed in your art.. You should enter them into Blue Monday.


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment, I really appreciate it - Liz
