I was working on an ATC for a Fontastic Letter ATC swap, where I design a swap using a word my partner chooses. My partner chose gražus (beautiful in Lithuanian) and I came up with this:
I collaged two shades of green tissue and while it was wet, sprinkled art glitter over it. The I cut it into inchies and hand drew a letter, topped that with glue, then added glass microbeads. The background is a patterned tissue paper with distress inks, accented with Sakura starlight pens, and then bordered with a copper metallic marker. More bling than appears in the photo, as usual! I wish I could figure out how to make the sparkle show-argh. Anyway, the gift of beads from my daughter came just at the right time.
Now, I will go rest some more so I don't overdo it today. It was a great birthday!
