Anyway, here are my interpretations of Bernie Berlin's techniques from her book - Nevr Dull, Phone Book Paper and String:
NEVR DULL - believe it or not, I actually found Nevr Dull at a shop called Horseland in Underwood (right around the corner from Scrapbooks Etc where I spend every Wednesday). As this is a product from the USA, it's not readily available here, so this was a real find. The background was a magazine image of a tiled wall, so I placed the PVA on alternating tiles and then rubbed out the bits in between with the Nevr Dull. The colour I added is of course a Glimmer Mist in the terracotta colour.
I love trying out Bernie Berlin's Artist Trading Card Workshop techniques through this swap and will be doing one of her workshops at the Creative Soul Retreat in March 2009 ... I can't believe I'm actually going to meet her ... it's so exciting.
Now I'm off to start creating some ATCs for the swap I committed to attending on Saturday ... rush, rush, rush, rush, rush ... lucky my hubby's out of town this week. See ya!
Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.
