The "A" and the "T" were already black, but the "R" was a natural color that papier mache usually comes in, so I painted the "R" with black paint using Ranger's Adirondack Acrylic Pitch Black Paint Dabber. If you haven't used these before, you should pick up a few (or all of them!) to make covering large areas so much easier.
Most of the papers I used are from Teesha Moore's collage sheets that she sells. I've also used some of my own papers in the same bright color scheme. I'm finding since I took Teesha Moore's workshops in June that I've been drawn to brighter colors lately.
I collaged the sides of the letters, added some dots using a white paint pen and . . .some stripes on the letter "T".
All of the letters have a generous coating of Diamond Glaze. Here they are standing up on a table. They can also be hung on the wall. Not sure where I will put them or if I will sell them.
So that's it for the pens, paints and papers for me today. I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and will have an art-filled week ahead.
**BC update: I'm going in for a check up on my "reconstruction site" this Thursday and to discuss the next steps in the process. I've been feeling pretty good aside from the side effects of the medication - hot flashes, some sleepless nights, sore throat, weight gain. But HEY, that's nothing compared to what I COULD be going through isn't it? *smiles* I feel blessed to be doing so well.
