Hello dear visitors and a special welcome to my 100th follower! I am very happy to see you here!
November already and time for a new challenge over at Country View Challenges.
This month the theme is: Artist Trading Coins!
I love to make this little treasure coins, they are so cute and a great opportunity to use your scraps or parts of a not very well accomplished backgroundpaper.
Here are my ATCoins:
And this is what I did:
I used this paper, on which I cleaned my brayer
and tried some new stamps.
Well - never throw away something! 😉
I punched out some 2 1/2" circles.
I matted them with cardboard to make them sturdier....
sealed the surface with transparent Gesso...
I took some stencils and Distress Oxides in matching colors to add some texture, ...
...gathered some small and tiny flowers...
and glued them down
Next I mixed Mini Art Stones with golden splash paint and added some white glue before I decorated the coins.
Now I sprinkled some glitter on top and when everything was dry, I added word stickers and some white highlights with a gelpen here and there.
Last step was to glue some scrap paer in black to the back and stamp the date.
Well, I fear I have overdone them a little bit - but, it is what it is.
Here are the coins one after another:
That´s it for today!
I hope, you will jump in to the fun and show us your little Artist Trading Coins! You know, you can win a 20 £ voucher for the shop!
Thank you for your visit and have a wonderful day!
