Think Monday - think metal!
I am a fan of heavy metal, of rusty nails, of odd metal pieces, plates and findings... but for this card I chose soft metals: golden paint, golden gel pen, Chinese silver money with a blue ink wash and a copper brad.
(I have to tell you all this, because you can't really see all of it. A lot of the gold got lost in the photo, and the inked Chinese silver just looks blue - located right underneath the stripey bar... Well, at least the brad is visible! )
Welcome autumn with its golden days
Background was done with watercolor - liked the prompt in last week's Inspire me Thursday and experimented with them on several different surfaces over the weekend. This card is done on plummy 200gm aquarelle paper.
Technique Thursday had a prompt to use circles. I thought, why limit myself to circles in design, why not make something circle shaped. So I experimented with 3¨ rounds. I had something in mind, but filling circle-shaped forms was harder than I thought it would be. Here they are - any ideas what I could make with them?
(And do they maybe feel a tad sparse?)
