Glamour Girls

1:18 PM Posted In Edit This 6 Comments »




These cards were made with a technique called Gesso Resist, a fabulous Technique Junkies mixed media art technique. Images are a sheet of stamps called "Glamour Girls" from I Brake For Stamps. Although the technique has been around a while, this is my first attempt at it. WOW, I love it and I'm sure it will soon become one of my "default" techniques (ya know, the one you always return to when you're trying to make something fabulous??). I am WILD about these images!! They are "halftoned", a term which is from the printing business meaning that the images have been converted into a dot pattern. (look at a photo in a newspaper and you will see a pattern of small dots. You're seeing half dots and half paper, hence the term "halftone") There are very few stamps available today with this type of dot pattern, so I am overjoyed to have these in my stamp collection. AND they stamp like a dream! So, meet my glamour girls! Enjoy!!
