The challenge this week on Arty Girlz is wire

I have been playing with tissue paper
I used molding paste for texture when dry i used charcoal over the top to get it in the little nooks then painted the background. this is when i started playing with the tissue paper i tried to make flowers lol they kinda look flowerish but i think i need lots more practice LOL. I added wire in the stems when I was done

Arty Girlz weekly challenge #72 ~ FLOWERS

The challenge this week on Arty Girlz is Flowers

As usual the challenge is open into interpretation and you can choose your own format be it a card, layout, altered art,mixed mediad it up to you


This is mine its a work in progress i started this about 2 weeks ago, I have never actually painted an image before i usually cut them out and glue them where i want them LOL so its a big thing for me to have actually painted it all,

I used molding paste for the texture and acrylic paint .. i have the basic structure down now i want to start adding some different elements to it like tissue paper tetro seal and also get the oil pastel's out and maybe some more layers ? I'm not sure where I'm actually going with it so I'm hoping it will get finished eventually.

some close ups

Arty Girlz weekly challenge #71 ~ Red and white colour combo

The challenge for this week over Arty Girlz challenge blog is to use a red & white colour combo
You can choose your own format this time so you may choose to do a scrapbook layout, atc, inchie, altered art etc or this could be a good time to get started on those valentine cards .

I made a card which i'm not keen on at all it is red and white but looks pink in the pic oh hum it is very red honest .....

I'll tell you why i dont like it my craft stuff is in the shed at the bottom of the garden and its been freezing down there even with the heater on so i threw the card together so i could come back in the warm so rushed is the word for it . LOL

I used red and white paint for my background applied with a roller cut and glued it to the card. painted my letters white and sanded them and added red text with a stamp. i sprinkled red glitter glue over the background the glued the letter's in place
