Altered Coaster


Hello again it's still Monday. Both winners have contacted me, I am so pleased your both happy with your win. I am also back with a crafty piece for you. I really enjoyed the technique  for the back ground for this so Much so I am joining a fat book swap over at My Art Friends And I will be sharing this technique for the back ground. This is a great group with lots of wonderful things to share. This month we're looking for the first 40 people to join in and select a technique and we are going to have a large page x40. So lots to do as each page is original (not a copy) just imagine though 40 pages coming back your way each with a different technique with the instructions on the back. I have to say last time I looked (this morning) there were only eight places left. But if you miss out not to worry there are lots of other things for inspiration.


Here is a close up, I really like the torso, there from Wendy Vecchi Art Parts 'dress forms and more'. I got mine from Art from the Heart and there are so many variations to. I love them so thick will not buckle with paint spays etc I hope you like this. I love it!


I also thought I would share this, another technique with alcohol ink I have yet to perfect it. But I am liking it so far ha ha. This is packaging which I have stamped with stazon ink cut out then later I have placed AI on the back I painted it on and got lots of control however the colour was very diluted. So I have suffered the lack of control to get the intense colour. Then I have used my heat gut to melt the plastic so I could mould the wings. Have a go and let me know how you improve as I am sure you can. And so now in to my third year of blogging Love Dawn xx
