I haven't written here, but I have been busy creating art!
The other cards in these exchanges - usually 3 different out for 3 back - can be seen over on my ATC"sFOR ALL Gallery page
Constellations were done on coated scratchboard paper with cp and gel pens...found the surface is so slick anything used to colour photographs ( like Marshall's photo cps ) works on that surface very nicely!
Tried "scraping" first and found it not my forte'!
The Tiffany lamp postage stamp was built around a last century French fashion illustration, with added collaged elements
The "Apple twins" are a face doubled and cut out. Image courtesy of WACKY STUFF , of FLICKER.
The "Nuptial Visit" is a PD Theatre image I collaged over a water-coloured background over which I embossed feather shapes with cp for the wall-paper.
"The Newfangled Invention " actually WAS an invention...!!
I placed it in the early 1900s, but it actually was invented in the early 1930's...the inventor remains a Frenchman, but with his HEAD SWAPPED for a more EDWARDIAN-looking fellow, following STEAMPUNK- period"conventions"
Three pictures were combined and layered to make it , and I decided designing it to look like an old studio photo of the period would be fun!
