Mini ATCs Silk Series (June 2006)


ID: Silk "Smile"

I finally tried doing some silk painting. I tried various applications to mask my negative areas. This one and "Sing" were both done by brushing melted wax onto the silk (100% silk), "Laugh" was done with white embossing powder and using my thermal embossing method, "Memories" was done with Tulip brand color block. After applying the dye and letting it dry and removing the masking, I added some accent thermal embossed areas in gold. I cut out a mini card frame, glued my silk to it, then covered the

 frame with copper foil, wrapping it slightly around the frame, then gluing that to another piece of cardstock. I add the words with various writing implements. As you can see the word "Smile" above left feathered a bit (used a zig marker). The word "Sing" and "Memories" were both done with a gold gel pen. The words "Laugh a lot" was done with the white embossing masking. There will still be more practicing and trying out different methods. It was a fun exercise.
