This is what I came up with for my next ATC swap. The theme is Mixed Media. That leaves the field wide open complicating the process a bit. I finally settled on this my third design.
Mixed Media, simply put is a mixing of any type of crafty products, such as stamping, painting, stencils, markers, chipboard, tissue, cardstock or any other type of products you may think of to put on a project. I don't know of any rules that say how many products you have to mix on the project.
For this project I've used watercolor paper swished through watered downed TH paints for my base. I used my brick wall stencil with acrylic paint, not TH because I wanted the true red. If I used TH paints it would have blended with the base colors. I then used my Faber Castell white pen to color in the mortar. My icicles are a stamp image I embossed with white, my snowflakes are stamps I used white craft paint on. I used Black Archival ink to stamp the owl on left over base paper, the hat was stamped on white cardstock and colored with markers. The sentiment is computer generated. The branch the owl is standing on is just a rolled up and crinkled text weight paper colored with TH Walnut Stain.
I have to finish the other nine and get them in the mail. Before going on to another project. Hope to be back on Sunday. see you then.
