A close-up of one of the small tiles which has been cuttlebugged for texture, painted black then rubbed with Silver rub'n'buff to bring out the texture, then a fuse wrapped with metallic thread around it.
"Wife/husband"... (at the top of this atc is a piece of the new 10 Second Studio metal that we now stock at Scraptivate. It has been run through the cuttlebug and then sanded to reveal the silver - it started out as a beautiful mocha colour).
"Dream"... (this one also has some of the 10SS metal down the left hand side - same treatment as the one above - cuttlebugged then sanded back. The word "Dream" was stamped onto the right side of the metal, then I used a stylus to impress the word into the metal then sanded it back so the depth of the word keeps the aqua blue of the metal while the remainder is silver.)
The previous class was Mosaic Embossing and this was an atc that was made using that technique. I sometimes like to do a card as well to show the girls that they can take any of the techniques learnt in my class and apply it to whatever else they want to do. So below the atc is a card using the same image and the same technique.
Tomorrow I'm planning on spending the day doing up my samples for the next class - Metallic Cardstock BUT I'm also going to make a start on the art doll for the class that I've been promising the girls I'd run. This art doll will be stitched, stamped, stuffed, beaded and generally embellished within an inch of it's life! I'll also be showing them how to make ~shudder~ "flowers" to add as embellishment - maybe hair??? Don't fear girls, they will be shabby, grungy flowers. Might make this first art doll up in vintage white/cream but there will definitely be a darker version as well.....have to have SOMEWHERE to put my little silver and black skulls that I bought! lol
