My first attempt at 'Twinches'



This is my first attempt at 'Twinches' and I thought I would try them out for a swap on Zuzu's forum.



Lots of texture are you can see - got to keep practising that!


At two inches by 2 inches they were rather fiddly to do! But I am pleased that I had a go.


As Zuzu reminded me - If I don't have a stamp to fit the subject/topic - I can collage - so I took her advice.


I bought a digital collage sheet (I know - but I took some of her advice and the sheet had lots of different portraits!)

I printed them out on best quality photo paper, then cut them out, backed them with card - and then just played around. Some I have used alcohol inks on the 'No Nails' paste, others I have used paints, and on all of them I used embossing powders.

Boy do you need to do this in a well ventilated room!

Thank you one and all - I've spent a lovely day in my studio but in the garden with torrential rain pelting down on the roof - chickens clucking in the garden - and husband indoors - all quiet on the other end of the walkie talkie - MAGIC

And the texture and motivation is all down to Zuzu and Ginger.
