The next one is the acetate/transparency with the stamped image on it, then the acetate was run through the 250 xyron to make it sticky, perfect pearls were dusted on to this then it was run through the xyron again, then attached to a book page. Handmade gold paper was added down the bottom and a little at the top with some words and an arrow spinner.Perfect Pearls also work great on German Scrap, the atc below has one of the wonderful black swan wings dusted with the PP on top of embossing ink as well as the bottom piece of mat board that also has the PP treatment, along with a little water and some hammering using the non-working end of the paintbrush to get the "hammered metal" look. We learnt this particular technique in Tim Holtz's great classes that he did last year in Perth. The background of this one is alcohol ink on gloss card with a couple of embossed flourishes.
Last one.....I must give the kudos to Nick, a particularly talented artist on a US-based yahoo group that I'm a member of. He made an atc and asked if we could guess how he did the ethereal looking lady descending the stairs...all sorts of guesses were made....I guessed correctly so "won" the atc. He'd used the interference green Perfect Pearls to brush over the woman....looks fabulous in real life! No Nick, I didn't alter yours, I made one myself after finding the same picture that you had used....hope this is okay ;-) I'm sure the girls are going to love it tomorrow!
Okay.....ABBA....yes, I'm old enough to remember them from their hey-day and wasn't particularly into the bubble-gum pop that was their music. Another yahoo group girl, Kathy, has put me onto another Finnish band called The Rasmus. Matter of fact, I have a cd of theirs waiting for me tomorrow....a birthday present from me to me....I digress....so here's an ABBA song that I can actually listen to....cool band.....(the intro takes a bit of time, worth waiting for though...well, I think it is anyway!) lol
