'Nice News' - I am so chuffed, an Art Student at a local school has to study an Artist as part of their coursework, it doesn't have to be a famous Artist, which is just as well, cos guess who they have asked...
And a bit of Tat, I was supposed to be doing some housework today ....but after running about doing a few chores and cooking dinner for tonight I ran out of enthusiasm so had a play in my craft room... working on the principle that the dust will still be there when I have pegged it.
I haven't altered a Slide Mailer for ages and I wanted to make a RAK for someone so I killed two birds with one stone. As usual I had no idea what I was going to do when I sat down, it just kind of happened. The mailer was dabbed with a Rangers Dabber in butterscotch, which is my favourite alcohol ink colour, but in paint it looks like diarrhoea, so I sprayed it whilst still wet with Glimmer mist and dried with my heat gun then sprayed again with a gold GM. Lovely effect!
The slide is not a glass one but an acrylic slide. I find these much easier to stamp on. The background to the slide is the paper I used to protect my desk, whilst painting and spraying. I looks really effective. Other than that there are a couple of homemade split rings which the padlock goes through, some stamping/embossing/friendly plastic and micro beads. I hope the recipient likes it!
