Versamark and Graphite Resist Video

November 16, 2012 in Mixed Media Posts, Video Posts by Ursula Smith

For those who would like to know the Versamark and Graphite Powder technique, but didn’t quite understand my written instructions, here is a video where I demonstrate the technique. I also show an ATC that I made using the technique on Glow in The Dark vinyl from Papilio. You can find that here. If you are looking for the Graphite or Charcoal Powder, you can find it at Dick Blicks. We would love it if you purchased it by clicking the link to the right!

Enjoy!

 

October Halloween ATCs

November 10, 2012 in Mixed Media Posts by Ursula Smith

Well it is that time of the month! Time for Artist Trading Card show and tell! This month’s theme was Pumkins/Halloween. It was a really fun one. I decided to try my hand at drawing for the two young girls that have joined our swap. I made the rest of the ATCs a little more spooky. But all of them had a touch of Glow in the Dark Vinyl which you can’t see here, unfortunately.

I loved the cards I received! The are all so unique!

Here are the cards I made…

Well, it has been a while since I have done a video, so this week I decided to show something I have started to do in my Art Journals. I use Clear Gesso, Stencils, and Kraft Glassine by Tim Holtz to make frames.

Enjoy!
