Holy Posting, Batman! 2 in one day????? I think I'm done for the year! LOL
Here are a few more pieces I did the other day on my "art play day". I took some aluminum sheet metal (in a roll) and cut out shapes with my Sizzix Big Kick. Then I embossed the metal using Ten Seconds Studio molds and a couple of Cuttlebug Embossing folders. Then I painted with the Tim Holtz Adirondack Paint Dabbers(by Ranger). Love the colors of this paint!! :) After the paint dried, I sanded the flowers/leaves so the embossed pattern shows up nicely! :)
The great thing about using metal is that you can then bend and fold the pieces to give a really nice 3D effect. I have the flowers/leaves arranged on a canvas board that I colored waaaaaaaaay back when dinos walked the earth. I do believe I used some of my homemade color wash on it! :) Now, I just need to find the perfect photo and frame it up!!!!
