Blue Moon

I had a spare couple of hours this morning so made an ATC for the swap on MAMMA. The challenge was to use a backgournd of your choice and there must be fabric, a traingle shape and some metal incorporated into your piece.

I used slate and silver mixative alcohol inks for the background and cut out a triangle of blue 'tie dyed' fabric which I glued to the left of the piece of card. I copvered the ATC with some 'moondust mesh' then made a fimo face. I painted the face with Tropic Blue mica powders and highlighted the eyes and mouth with a silver pen. I stuck the face into a bottle cap and added some blue seed beads for definition. Finally, I put the silver bead spray embellishment to imitate shooting stars and stuck on some small fabric silver stars.

We were not supposed to use metal brads but I hope I can be forgiven for the large silver one as it was the only way I could think of to secure the bead spray!

I just stumbled on your blog via google... and was hoping you could answer a question. I've looked everywhere for a silver bead spray. Where did you find them??? Please let me know. I've gone everywhere!


Hi Viv - have just discovered your lovely blog! I love sun, moon and star images - they are such happy symbols. The moon face is fabulous - we don't see enough of the Fimo clay modelling these days, and it's so enjoyable to work with. I love the layout and the colour scheme of your ATC too - fabulous!!
