Below is the fold-out atc that was for the raffle for Tuesday night's atc class. Quite devoid of colour but it worked out okay..... love the German Scrap Scroll embellishment on the left hand side! There is a word on the metal embellishment down the bottom, it says "tryst". First pic is the atc closed:
Second pic it is open:
We've had "dental issues" in our household this week. My 19yo son Cort had all 4 of his wisdom teeth pulled out last Saturday. I'm sure when I had mine done eons ago there wasn't all the rigmarole that was required for him: ice packs on the face - 20 mins on, 20 mins off, constantly, for 3 days! Saltwater mouth-rinses 8 times a day, 2 lots of antibiotics, 1 lot of anti-inflammatories, Savcol (antiseptic) mouth wash twice a day, syringing of the sockets 6 times a day!!! GAWD!!! But he's gone off to work happily this evening for the first time since he had the op and seems to be recovering.
The next atc class is Canvas Paper and I'm going to show the girls how to do a technique that I learnt from one of Claudine Hellmuth's wonderful books. The technique is Rinse Aid Resist, you use dishwashing rinse aid to create a resist on acrylic paint on canvas paper. Below are a couple of atc's that I've made in the past using this particular technique.
This next one, also using rinse-aid resist, is a 4" x 6" canvas I made for a gift for a family member. It seems kind of "bland" as it's one of the very first canvases I did, I think I would do more to it these days!
