Fears, Foibles and Phobias
That's the challenge theme this month over at Scrapgal. It will be my last month as a guest designer and I must say the time has flown by! I really enjoyed being a part of this enormously talented design team. But from November 1 there will be others taking over this spot.
For the newsletter it was my turn to write an article and I went way out of my comfort zone and decided to tackle 'The Artist's Medium'. Played with melted bee's wax and wax crayons again and got messy doing gel medium transfers. Very cool effects! (even if it took a few tries to get it right)
Anyway here are my projects for the newsletter. It's the only scrapping I've done lately.
Photo printed (dark - for silhouette effect) on transparency then transfered to cardstock using gel medium.
A card, using an image from a magazine (toner copy) and transfered with gel medium.
And melted bee's wax mixed with melted wax crayons painted directly over the photograph. I then took the heat gun to it again to smooth out the wax and make the colours bleed through a bit. After it had set I scratched the title directly into the wax. The background is made up from layers of tissue that I distressed and painted over with silver paint and gesso.
