Splatter! Edited (edits in red)

Hi!  Did you have a fabulous weekend?  I sure did!  We celebrated Thanksgiving a bit early as ALL four of my kids were home this weekend!  It was the first time in what seems like forever that we have all been together!  We had a house full of family and friends yesterday - about 26 people in all!  It was glorious, everyone had a fantastic time!

I am running a bit behind (what else is new) on  A Compendium of Curiosities Challenge 22 so I am having another mad dash to post before the deadlines.   Good thing I work well under pressure! lol  Details about the challenge and prize can be found on the fabulous Linda Ledbetter's StudioL3 blog.  She has a new challenge every Monday!  This week we were told to turn page 52 for Alcohol Ink Splatter!

I started with some acetate (recycled from an old report cover) (so much for following directions), using a negative mask I spray painted the image with black paint on the acetate, after the paint dried I applied the technique of the week directly to the acetate and over the black paint, added some embellishments and was done!

Have a fabulous week!



  1. Fabulous, Wonderful, Fantastic! Does that cover all three? You sure have been busy in more ways than one! Love these!!! So glad you had some wonderful family time. How fun for all! That is what it is all about!

  2. WOW, Linda, no wonder you wanted to do the technique this way. It's absolutely stunning! The acetate over top of the splatter gives the images such a dreamy, soft look and adds such a great multi-dimensional element. "Magical" is right-- these are some of the most beautiful holiday pieces I've ever seen.

    I'm glad you had such a wonderful early Thanksgiving, and I hope this week's is just as nice.
