ATC Monday #016 - Time for Tea
It's time for another ATC, and I am loving the Pick N Mix prompts from Mixed Up Magazine.
This weeks prompt is "Make circles with your coffee cup". Now I don't drink coffee so I have used a little artistic license! For this project I wanted to incorporate tonal coffee colours in to the design as well as introducing the circular elements. Instead of coffee you'll see I have added tea instead!
Here I have layered up vintage papers for the background. I have created a wash over the surface using DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Burnt Umber and Yellow Oxide. To add texture to the wash I have mixed in tea leaves.
Further elements were added including a circular tea bag, the rings were created using a bottle cap!
I have finished the ATC by adding a butterfly embelishment, painted with a wash of Quinacridone Gold and edged with Burnt Umber.
