New Team

"2012" NEW TEAM

Yes! It has taken me this long to post this. Since then the team has become smaller and new members have joined the fun.
I found it worth posting....I did something crazy with the photo's and played with new stuff at the time....pan pastels.

Birds and twig have been  fussy cut from the paper...Prima Marketing of course!
The flowers are made with the Magnolia dies. you can see a little of the masking done with gesso, then colored with the Pan Pastels.

More close ups.

Love all this yummy texture and soft colors

Here is the team...
It was the first time in a long while that the team was able to get together with out missing a person. We are all, like most creative people, very busy with making the most of the sort hours in the day!
See the crazy fun way of photo use. I sure was holding onto the seat of my pants when doing it. But he results was well worth it! I am still  happy with the results. I hope you enjoy it too.

If you want to try this......

How I did it:-
You need two photo's the same. eg. black and white. Fussy cut the people, then arrange them in a collage how you want it when finished. Then you also know how much room you need for it when you can use the drying time to create further  with the LO. Take a photo of the arrangement with your phone, this is so you know how to arrange the pieces for later when it is all dry...yes you get to wet your photo's! Separate the photo's..... All that hard work arranging! Each photo is done separately. With a pair of reversible tweezers, hold the photo while applying the glossy liberally. Leave to dry....WARNING...this will take a long time to dry, so do allow time for this. The photo's will curl up a little,so do not panic...this is part of the effect.
To make the crackle pop, I applied distress ink, then worked the edges a bit to make it all look old and loved. And remember to have a lot of fun!

Thank you for taking the time to stop and visit.
