For a theme called 'Faces'

Vintage photo with 'aged' marks, scrapbook paper which I have given 'depth' to by enhancing the green background with shading and shadows and patterns - ditto the flowers.

Flowers Series

Badgers - For friends

My green series of Oriental swaps

Pleasure Lady - watercolour stamped background - gilding which looks a mustard colour in the photo - which is a shame


'After the bath' at a Geisha House - once again the grey areas are silver.


This is a stamped image hand coloured with watercolour pencils made for a swap

All the grey areas are in fact lovely shining silver - the scan never shows it up though

Another Textured ATC for a swap

Textures and enamelling

Thick textured papers, distressed embossing, hand painted backing papers, vintage photo, and bride and groom side of ATC dipped several times in UTEE

Handpainted paper, tissue paper, scrunched up threads and wool, glitter plus more - tons of texture - for a swap

A simplistic 'child' type painting in the style of a stained glass window. Dipped in hot enamel to then cracked to give a window feel and effect

An ATC for a Textured swap, using silk material cut into 'leaves' half enamelled to give them a smooth shiny feel. They were veined and mounted on card on top of silk whic had additional gilt patterning by me. Mounted on painted sandpaper, with some gold dot work

It doesn't really show up on the scan though.
