This is the first time I am participating in one of the Gingersnap Challenges.
I made a 4 x 4 hanger for the current theme Gothic Elements.

  3. At first glance, I thought it was a purse you had created. It is so lovely that it would make a great design for an autumn one. Hard to believe you got all those collaged items on that tiny 4x4 square! Great work.

  9. Hi Astrid :)

    What a wonderful hanger!! I Love your work :) Thank you so much for leaving such a kind comment at my blog. I'm happy you like my backgrounds. I made them using several layers of acrylic paint, I started out using water with just a little bit of paint mixed in. I used a papertowel to lift colour in some areas and bubblewrap for lifting and adding paint. some homemade foamstamps, glimmermist screens/stencils. I dabbed the paint with a sponge all over the stencils. I used different stencils for different layers. I also have a foam brayer with a sqare pattern cut into the foam, which, when using multipple colours makes great pattern and depth. Hope this made sense :) what's most important I guess is using several layers and playing around with all the different elements, using happy accidents for what they're worth and having fun :)

    Thanks, hugs and smiles,
    Linda

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
