Yachting Anyone? – December 7, 2009

“Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.”

– Sir Winston Churchill

Yachting Anyone?

2.5″ x 3.5″ Collage ATCThanks to Leslie White, I have been having a ball doing little skyline ATCs for an Alternate Art exchange on WetCanvas. This one was done by cutting little pieces of necklace cord and gluing them to the card as buildings. I added a little color and texture medium, then painted little white dots with acrylic.

The yacht is Jeannetini, cut from a Showboats magazine..

This one was done, using felt.

I used spackling paste for the buildings on this one.

Here are some progress shots..

    You are truly a Master of Creativity and Joy!
