It’s been a while since I’ve posted an art piece. This is a commission I finished today. I’m working on a second and third commission now too and the second one is nearing the finish line. I’m really pleased with how this turned out. It has tons of texture. I used a crumpled up paper napkin that I peeled the white backing from for the background. Then I used a gold metallic finish rubbed in with a baby wipe for yumminess.

The flowers are enhanced with different texture mediums from gold leaf, black lava, and modeling paste, I used hardware for the centers of the yellow flowers, I painted them and added red rhinestones to the centers, the other two flowers have rhinestone centers as well.

I’ll be back soon to post the second painting in my commission as soon as it’s finished… which should be SOON!

Happy 2sday!

ClockworkOrange

About time…literally. I the process for this ATC was fun. For the gear I used hardware I picked up at Home Depot. It was silver in color so I used some Aleene’s Tacky Glue and dabbed it on with a paintbrush. I then dumped orange embossing powder all over them to get good coverage… melted it with my heat gun and repeated the process. I really like how they turned out. The clock center is a maize colored brad and the clock is an embellishment I got from the craft store. The rest is hand cut collage papers. Again I used my trusty texture on the background and sponged the edges of both the card and the body with black ink from a stamp pad.

Happy Friday! I love Fridays! Today is my shopping day and it time for me to go remake my shopping list so I’ll say ado here and see you again tomorrow for Day 20! in my BCA Month ATC series. God Bless!
