I had a big clean up on and around my art desk...I even spent 2 hrs sorting my chippy shapes into themes...then I wondered why the heck I bothered as I use chippy in pieces when I make mixed media cards/work. Sure I may start with say a tree branch but you would never know it by the end LOL I'm thinking I need to contact companies and ask for their off cuts!! My biggest\ stash in chippy is cogs and watch faces etc.......hhhmmm those of you whom know me well would know I am a steampunk fan with a passion for cogs, light bulbs and wings etc.
While I sorted my chippy stuff I left some out to use. Then I found one of my fav vintage child images, some white gesso unearthed under some card stock and then found my gel medium and a few small flowers and trinkets....and before I knew it I was making another mixed media card called "Love, wishes and dreams". I used Dylussions spray as the red/yellow colour and then Perfect Pearls Mist gold on top so its lovely and shimmery. First photo is with flash off.
Closer look at the details. Cogs, buttons, zippers, press studs, light bulb, wooden peg, lace, chippy, flowers, watch parts etc etc
This last shot I tilted the card so you can sort of see the shimmer when the light hits it :o)
The card is large...just a bit bigger then A5. Hope the person I had in mind for this likes it :o). Don't forget I'll draw the winner of my Give Away below tomorrow so please enter if you want a chance to win. Sheesh...off to colean up my desk again and I'll try to not get distracted this time LOL
