'Mix It' atc trade

Title for the next Vera lane studios atc trade is 'mix it'. Here is my creation, inspired by Wayne's World :

Isn't this fun, and so colourful. I have used a fish image from ocean 11, and some bunny but I elongated the body. I also used the free edge image that is available in the Facebook group. 

That background is made by painting on coloured molding paste. I late it try and rubbed it in brown shimmer ink to accentuate the texture. All parts were printed and coloured with copics, India ink, gel pen and sharpie. 

The ground is made from a mesh that I adhered with double sided tape. Then I added some of the tiny pop beads from American crafts. They stuck to the double sided tape between the mesh. 

The images were fussy cut at adhered, the main image embossed and popped up with dimensionals. I wrote the words and doodled some white bubbles with a white sharpie paint pen.

I also made this little ATC with the fish set, to accompany its friend in the ATC trade :
This is a rather unusual fish environment, but the little fish, wearing the lipstick seems perfectly content ! LOL This is an acrylic paint background, I finger painted the plants and used an india ink pen. The words were typed on my typewriter. The fish is coloured with prisma pencils and india ink and white gel pen. The eye lashes were cut from paper and glued in place. 

That was such a lot of fun to create. I had a bit of a stressful day and there's nothing like unwinding by doing some crafting and watching an old movie :) 


Please leave me some love, your comments make my day :)
