Anyway, I was chuffed that Sian sent me her 5. They were too good to shove away in my ATC album, which isn't looked at as often as it should be, so I decided to mount them on a canvas so they can be hung for all to see. Canvases can be bought quite cheaply these days, I am sure a proper artist would turn their nose up at them, but for my kinda collagey work they are fine. But I wanted a long thin canvas and it seems that odd shaped ones are quite pricey, so I was considering other alternatives until I came across one that had already been 'painted' on in a cheapo shop.......... £1.99 and some gesso later it was a blank canvas again!
So here it is.... the 5 ATC's by Sian and a bit of gesso paint, sculpture gel, more paint, more gesso and some images (the same stamp that Sian had used) and dragon flies stamped onto tissue paper and adhered with Gel medium.......... and hey presto , something to adorn my wall!
Thank you Sian!!
