Saturday's Workout - "Alter a Photo"




I've wanted to participate in Saturday's Workout challenges for a long time; this weekend, I got the chance! The theme for this week was to alter an original postcard or photo. I took an old cabinet card that I had and made it into a Halloween card--I used alcohol inks, Liquid Shimmer, Pearl-ex Powders, stamps and ink, watercolor pencils and a Versamark pen, a little paper, and Stickles glitter to alter and enhance the background and photo. You name it, I used it! You can't really see it in the photo, but her eyes glow with the red glitter-- I was just playing around, and I don't think it's perfect by any means, but it was lots of fun.

Wow, Jann, this looks like so much fun. I love PearlEx and Stickles and all that glittery stuff, just as it seems you do. The colors of this piece are just awesome. This is so well done.
