Star Ornament Swap! Sharon Walworth ~ Rhode Island
Well . . . Sharon Walworth really blew me away with her star ornaments. They have a quality about them that is so beautiful, don't you agree? Sharon used images from one of my favorite Altered by Design image sheets, called Marigold ~ which is Exclusive to Alpha Stamps. Sharon enclosed a note in her package . . . .
Hi Lenna! I really enjoyed making these stars, in part because I was able to incorporate a technique I learned at "Art is . . . 2008" last week. I took a class with Leslie Venable, where we made small altered board books. She shared lots and lots of techniques, but the one I currently love is seen on the back of my stars. I used gesso as the stamp medium just painting it on (the stamp) with a little brush. Now you probably know all about that (NO, I don't!! It sounds great, I will try it!) but it was a lightbulb moment for me!!!
~ Well, I LOVE what you have created here, Sharon. absolutely beautiful! And thanks so much for the extra ornament for me. : )) -click on the photos for more detail!
