My lovely friend Louise from Zuzu Petals 'n Stuff is hosting an altered beer mat swap. Each player is to make 5 altered coasters, send them to Louise and she will then make holes for each one and swap them out among the players, so that each of us will receive 5 in return which we can then make into a mini book. I have not done a swap for ages, and this one sounded like a lot of fun. So here are the ones I made:
I started by giving them a thick coat of Gesso and then added textures with the help of various stencils and some embossing paste. I wanted them to be like a kind of series, so I used these sultry women images for each one.
Cardmaker's Delight and come as ready printed so called card toppers. I saw these first on the blog of the lovely May and she gave me the link. For me the challenge was to blend them right into my backgrounds, which were created with the help of various acrylic paints and stamps.
Well, hope you like my altered beer mats, I have not played with digital images for ages, but have to say, I really enjoyed it.
Thank you for visiting like always and hope you are having a good week!
