Well, let's see............
Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, Happy MLK Day, Happy Presidents Day, Happy Valentines Day, and Happy St. Patty's Day. Whew!!!! I think I'm all caught up now! :)
Let's just say.........moving is NOT fun!!
Waaaaaaaaay back in December, I got a whole bunch of Ten Seconds Studios toys for Xmas. (If you have not seen a "Taco Tuesday", you must go check out the site!! Fantastic product and tutorials....and, a terrific blog!!) I have finally been able to find some time to play with them a little. Here is one piece I did. I just have to find the rest of my "stuff" so I can mount it for a wall display! :)
I started with a Fred Mullett fish stamped on the back of the metal in StazOn ink. I then embossed the outline, fins, and face. I was going to try and emboss all of the little scales, but decided that my refiner was not small enough to do them justice. So, I improvised and "filled in" my fish with one of Ten Seconds Studios molds. (Big Mama Alphabet Mold: BM05) Then I refined, sanded, and did a touch of Payne's Grey acrylic paint over the image. I then used one of my texture wheels to add the "water" around the fish. I'm pretty happy with it for my first try! :)
Here is the stamped image of the fish on the back of the metal:
