After reading Julie Fey-Fan Balzer's blog on her 2nd Floor Challenge project - I realized I had lots of "found" objects of my own at home. This isn't finished (should have taken pics as I was going along - too lazy to go down and get my camera!) and besides some writing I'm not sure what I'm going to add. I visited NY recently to see my mom and stayed with some good friends. My friend runs a lady's tea each spring at church and I was there for at least part of it. I took home the unused napkin and some mylar hearts. I decided to make something for her and use those items. It's hard to see the napkin designs - but IRL they are a little more visible. I also used some of the hearts and realized they would crinkle when I was drying the Dylusion spray ink. I used Tim Holtz (Sizzix) Tattered flower and Gear dies and layered them on the gessoed watercolor paper. Painted again with gesso and after it dried sprayed the Dylusions (Bubblegum pink; london blue; leaf green). Spritzed with water and dried with a heat gun. Then patted the whole thing with watered down gesso. Added some tattered flowers from an old atlas (another found item) and a pearl. Happy with it so far - although it was pretty ugly early on. We'll see where it goes from here! Let me know what you think - I've wanted to do this challenge each month and something else was always going on! Thanks for stopping by.
