As you know this month Altered Pages is pairing up with Unruly PaperArts, a blogozine filled with creative ideas, art and inspiration. Each month they cover a different theme ~ Aprils theme is Mail Art & Moos with a creative prompt of Teacups & Tiaras. Altered Page Artsociates are also incorporating laser cut chipboard from Leaky Shed Studios. If you've been following along this month I think you can tell we're all having great fun with it.
Here is my offering for you today...
a very British Postcard....
The teacup was painted with gesso then covered with two layers of the Silks Acrylic Glaze. I used the Inca Gold Guilders Paste on the crown, rim of the tea cup and saucer.
To make the thin gold line around the outside edges of the postcard I used a scrap sheet of paper and positioned it so only the very edge of the postcard was showing. I then rubbed the Guilders Paste over this exposed area and repeated for each side.
I used a floral image from the Tea Party Flowers collage sheet for the pattern on my tea cup. I further embellished the tea cup with a bit of pen work using the Micron pen. I works wonderfully over the Silks glaze. To finish off the postcard I stamped the saying...
