Altered Pages Artsociates group on Facebook--a fantastic group of creatives that anyone is welcome to join! Discussion ensued about how they liked the fuzzed out kitty. I however was determined to create the project I had envisioned.
I began by printing my Digital Collage Fall Fantasy so that it fit into half of an 8½×11" sheet of cardstock. I trimmed the portion of the image so that it would fit in my White Brass jewelry finding from Sakura Hobby Crafts and adhered it to the finding with Crystal Lacquer. I then layered lacquer on top of the image and mixed in a few "gem particles" also from Sakura. I set my charm to dry in front of a fan. I awoke the next morning to this.
I printed another copy of the same collage sheet in the same manner and this time I fussy cut around my kitty, the broom, and a pumpkin. I also punched out a yellow cardstock moon with my 1" circle punch. I began layering on the moon and broom and pumpkin and finally the cat with the lacquer. I then put on some more "gem particles" and a final thin layer of lacquer...and once again placed my project in front of the fan.
Voila!! I present to you my Halloween Charm as I had envisioned it! I hope you enjoy my journey to MY perfect art piece. There are no catastrophes in art only craftertunities! Thank you for looking! ~leslierahye
