Well now is the time to reveal of the winner of the “Guess My Swap Technique” I’m doing for the Arttechniques yahoo group.
drum roll pls……..
…IT IS A BROWN PAPER BAG distressed only with paints and silver ink. I was going for an antiqued silver metal look and thanks to all the comments I received I think I got fairly close to my objective. I must have crumpled that darned paper bag at least 5 or 6 times after each drying session because I really wanted lots of texture on it. I really like it!
The other one I did looks like bronzed metal (below). At first I was aiming for a leather-like look but eh….that sure didn’t work out. So I ended up rubbing more and more of the copper ink on it and loved the effect. The picture does not do it justice though, if only you could see this in person…and some of you lucky folks will get to once we swap next year.
So back to who won. Since no guessed exactly the right technique but everyone seemed to be in the same ballpark I put everyone’s name in the running and used the random number generator to pick a winner. And the winner is…….
Anne Marie, email me (see sidebar) and let me know your snail mail address so I can send your surprise gift on over to you. Congratulations and thanks for playing along everyone.
Now I’m off to make 122 little 4″x4″ cards. Whew! I’m tired already just thinking about it. Ha!
See ya next time “In the Hayloft”,
