Sakura Hobby Crafts and Terri Sproul Mixers!!!!
Hi folks! I wanted to show you something that I made with the Sakura Hobby Craft Lacquer and my Terri Sproul Mixers. Terri has shown us on her show (every Monday night at 8:00 PM EST on Linqto) and has also told us how easy it is to create ATC’s (artist trading cards) by using the lacquer and mixers. She even told us that you don’t have to wait until one color is completely dry before going over that color with another. Well I thought I would do just that. I started out with:
I used the color mixers in the pastel palette because those were the only colored lacquers I had. I do have to say though that when you mix the Terri Sproul Mixers with the colored Sakura Hobby Craft Mixers they come out an even deeper color. I also used Tanazanite Blue, Yellow Shimmer, Green Shimmer and a few pieces of the Gold Glitz. I also used a word to describe what I was trying to portray and an ATC card that was gessoed in black. This is what I came up with and I’ve got to say it looks awesome!!!!! I belong to a group on Facebook who perform Random Acts of Art! This ATC will be left anonymously in a public place for someone to discover and take home with them. Oh, my word is “shine”. :0)
This picture doesn’t even begin to show the Shine on the card produced by the mixers. Nope, not even close! What do you think of this ATC?
