How are you all this week? Getting ready for Valentines Day? Celebrating having some art time now the kids are back at school? Whatever you’re up to I hope you find some time to check out this weeks design team piece by Robyn Wood below. But first I just wanted to let you all know that we are currently taking applications for the next Design Team. If you think you’d like to apply please see our post on our facebook page which has more information.
Now lets join Robyn as she makes a colourful accordion folder and a set of artist trading cards to fill it. The folder is coloured with Dylusions and Heidi Swapp spray inks and a simple salted background technique gives lots of beautiful texture. If you haven’t tried making ATC’s before, Robyn’s simple steps will guide you through the process using our collage sheets.
