woyww -running late


Holidays have come to an end so I only have odds and ends to show on my desk.  Craft time is now very early in the morning or late at night.  Working on another ATC technique.  Using gloss card with a distress background, the alcohol inks are used to change the colour of some german scraps.
A pic of the completed butterfly canvas.  I not only sneaked in green but also a bit of pink.  The teenager was appalled that I added microbeads and at that point I stopped as the huffing and puffing over my shoulder was quite distracting.

Now for something a little different to the butterfly theme.  Another ATC.  I had used glue to give some dimension to the background on the piece of card.  Once the glue was dry I painted the background with black acrylic paint.  The paint separated from the glue and I was left with a speckled background.  Not what I had planned but after adding a stamped image, word and metal embellishment I thought the background was unique.  Apologies for the blurred pic but the ATC has so many raised objects that it was hard to scan.
Wishing all the OZ woyww a very happy Australia Day.

  2. Your butterfly canvas would have suited the theme over at Inspiration Avenue last week beautifully... maybe it is time you headed over and had a look at them... great group of people over there... thanks for the rain wishes on my blog.... not too bad where we are down by the bay, very very soggy, but only a few roads cut... good excuse to stay home!!!! Happy Australia day!!

  8. You were very daring slipping all that colour into your stunning canvas. I can just imagine the protests but in the end Mum knows best!!! It's absolutely gorgeous.
    The ATC is amazing.
    Happy Australia Day.

  10. What do teenagers know?? ignore all huffing and puffing says I. In fact huff and puff back and advise they 'get a life' LOL Liking the canvas with the green too. Green and blue should always be seen together in my book! Perfect partners.

  13. Ohh - great to see how the canvas ended up. Next time the teenager huffs, perhaps you could suggest that they do it themselves? LOL

    Thanks for stopping by!

  15. Your butterflies are fabulous and I love the way the ATC came about. It's often the way that accidents are triumphs like this one!

  17. Teenagers have no taste, those microbeads look great on those butterflies. In fact that canvas is beautiful. Thank you for your visit earlier, and your kind comments. I am with you on the dark side, with the Kindle. It is so easy to carry round, to dental appointments etc as well as on holiday. Have a good week. xx Maggie #90

  19. Hi there Sandra, ah the butterfly work first is just lovely but then so is the bottom ATC both very different but great - and what else is great the way you discover things like the background effect totally by accident - a great treasure that! thanks so much for popping over, and for sharing. Happy WOYWW! Shaz in Oz. x #26
