The Great White North is the December Theme at Gingersnap Creations, and today starts a new supply challenge: glitter. If you'd like to play along, you have until January 9 to link your creation to Gingersnap Creations.
For my Ginger Design Team glitter project, I knew immediately that I wanted to use the torn napkin technique I learned at the Art Quest 2010 Technique Tour. I knew I wanted a winter theme because I also was using the design for a holiday ATC swap that I'm hosting in my Tags and Things Group at Pages In Time. I found the perfect napkins by Gibson at my local Jeffrey Alans store. Not only are they 3-ply (which you need for this technique) but also each napkin had six panels of the 2 bird images. I really needed only one napkin, then, for my project. I get to use the rest in my dining room. YAY!
I came home from the Art Quest 2010 Technique Tour with a boat load of product and an incredible number of kits that we used during the workshop. We learned so many techniques that my head was spinning when I left. Speaking of my head, thanks to my EWV blog buddy Lori, I came home wearing a little extra hair product. Let's just say, never bend down to pick up your paper that just fell on the floor when Lori is sitting across from you trying to squeeze out a shot of glue! LOL!!! Back to the number of kits: I used some card paper and a mica chip corner that I found in one of the kit bags to complete this card. Thank you Art Quest! The sentiment is from Hobby Lobby.
I started by mixing acrylic and glaze to paint my canvas ATCs. Then I glued on the torn napkins sections and
and sprinkled the ATCs with Crystal Effects.
For the ATCs, I added a feather from a pack I purchased at JoAnn Fabrics and some gems. I stuck to the basic ATC rules of composition: background, image, embellishments --using only a minimum of embellishments so as not to cover this great image on the napkin and the added glitter. I have to make 5 all together.
I'm also entering this in the Tuesday Taggers Deck the Halls challenge.
It's supposed to feel like zero degrees this weekend. So bundle up and stay warm!
