patina and silver 16

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, September 3, 2016 @ 10:27 PM | , , , , ,

Hi there! I hope you are having a great weekend! The thermometer is still reaching temperatures above 100 degree but I'm chillin' in my craft room with snowflakes on my mind ;) Today I'm joining along with Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2016 Technique Remix September:

Here's my interpretation of the challenge:
Creating the background tag using the Paint Patina technique went well probably because I have created projects using that technique in the past:
as for the Alcohol Ink technique using YUPO paper was a different story. It took several attempts and by the third, I was satisfied. The tag features a variety of pretty snowflakes from Tim's Grungeflakes stamp set along with a Paper Snowflakes die cut layered snowflake:
 Here are a few of my other attempts at the alcohol ink technique on YUPO paper:
It's Day 2 of 30 in 30:
Today I have an 8" x 10" painting to share that was inspired by an online art lesson presented by Hall Groat Oil Painting Video DVD course. The antique silver teapot is one of the subjects to paint in the How to Paint Metal series:
I learned a lot along the way and can't wait to paint another teapot as well as a variety of other metal objects:
I'm linking this painting to the current Paint Party Friday site:
Many thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great weekend!
Be Sweet ;)

Your tag is so pretty, and your teapot painting is amazing! You learn to paint in new ways so quickly, I can hardly believe it! I couldn't paint a teapot like that in a month of Sundays. I truly love your work, Mona.
