These are my ATC's for the Roses and beads ATC swap.  The one on the left  is clay.  The clay was adhered to a piece of mat board and then stamped repeatedly with a round oriental stamp that I love and use a lot.  When it was finished I painted it with Metallic Silver acrylic paint.    I then sculpted the pink rose.  Punched two holes with a heart punch and beaded a little necklace with "catseye" beads and silver colored spacers.  Different.   I applied a glaze to the rose and leaves and when "baked" took on the look of morning dew...a total mistake on my part....but I like it....  The one on the right is a handpainted ATC with one of my favorite combo's.  Roses and pearls.  
These were done for a "swap" so I hope my partner will like them.  They are on their way tomorrow NorthEast of me.

About Me

My photo
Bend, OR, United States
I have recently started some new artistic journeys. A slight branch in the road from my first love which is painting. I am hoping to combine my painting abilities with a bit of mixed media to stretch my creativity and think outside the box. I am also doing quite a bit of jewelry design and love the steampunk assemblage although I also love creating jewelry using handmade glass lampwork. Hopefully my journey and the information/photos on this blog will inspire others to think outside the box. Please check out my other blog and my Etsy site by going to my website. Thanks for stopping by....
