This lone photo longed for a story. I chose Arizona as the locale and the Salt River as the body of water. It may or may not be true, but that is what the picture said to me. I combined many glorious creative tools:
This week I spent time watching a few USArtQuest videos. Susan Pickering Rothamel is an amazing artist with so many ideas and wonderful products. In one video she sandwiched an image between layers of a mica tile. I decided to give it a try, I am really happy with the results.
I used an Altered Pages Collage image of the Eiffel Tower.
I thought you might enjoy hearing from Susan Pickering Rothamel. She tells us how she got started and how her business works. She is an awesome woman with an awesome company. Thank You Susan for allowing us to partner with you. We are proud to have a working relationship with a real PRO!
Thanks for visiting today and stay tuned to see our Team create fabulous projects with USArtQuest products. We will be giving away a bottle of PPA for those who comment on the blog this week (one per day in a random drawing).
USArtQuest is partnering with us this month. Paper is one of my addictions and USArtQuest has some of the most amazing handmade papers. In the blue and gold paper I used today I saw waves, waves that would be perfect for one of the Altered Pages lighthouses!
I had a lot of fun this time around experimenting with a medium that I have not had the opportunity to use yet. I am showcasing DicroFusable Fibers in this card project. This is a really neat embellishment that can be added just about anywhere in your crafts, even quilting! #USArtQuest Here we go... All the goodies planned out...
Next, came very beautiful Mica Flakes at the top edge. These are a deep lovely blue hue.
Next, comes the new and fun Dicro Fibers. I used black, copper, gold and a bit of the white, all the these have an amazing iridescence to them.
Here is the "nest" that I made out of my color choices. Placed between parchment and under a warm iron for about 15 seconds and these fibers become a light and airy piece of fabric basically. They make an ethereal background under my celestial collage image. They can be cut, inked and added to just about anything.
