Transparencies & Acetate


Transparencies and acetate can be sooo much fun to play with!!  The above ATC was done on a thick plastic I cut from the lid of a greeting card pkg.  I used white staz-on to stamp on it.  This is just one thing you can do with it.  If you have collage sheet transparencies that opens a whole other world of ways to create.  Ever wonder what happens when  you turn your heat gun on a transparency?? Check it out!! However, do it carefully and in a room with some ventilation.  See what alcohol inks do on a acetate, then sponge on a white or cream colored ink over the top of that and watch them pop through the other side.  Lets see what kind of Outside the Box creation you can make this week.

    I love the idea of working with transparent elements. I want to do more. But here is the closest I have come so far with a girl with a transparent skirt of tissue paper (does that count?), and writing on vellum. I like the way the vellum lets through what is underneath but obscures it as well.

Whats This All About

Each week a new challenge will be posted. Your task is to then go create!!! When you're done, upload a photo of it to your own blog or website. Then post a comment here with a link to your photo so that we can all see what you've created. WARNING: THIS IS A FLOURISH FREE ZONE!!!!! I love flourishes just as much as the next artist, heck, I've even got one tattooed on the top of my left foot. However, flourishes seem to be IN everyone's box these days. Since this is an OUT of your box challenge, lets refrain from using them for these challenges.
