Art in the Round


This is my first contribution to The Three Muses. This week´s challenge is to make art in the round. The focal point in this ATC is a PaperArtsy stamp with four round coins at the bottom. The circle behind the face is coloured with Adirondack inks. On the background I stamped a line of Chinese characters with Versamark and embossed it with red. Unfortunately, on the scan this does not show up very well.

Dit is de eerste keer dat ik meedoe met een challenge van The Three Muses. Het thema van deze week is
art in the round. De focus in deze ATC is een stempel van PaperArtsy met vier ronde munten aan de onderkant.
De cirkel achter het gezicht heb ik gekleurd met Adirondack inkten.
Op de achtergrond heb ik een rijtje chinese karakters gestempeld met Versamark en met rood embossed. Helaas komt dit op de scan niet zo goed over.

Welcome to the Three Muses! I hope you will stay and join in our challenge each week.
I love your ATC book. The colours are beautiful and the child's image is somehow a little bit sad but very appealing. Lovely artwork.

Deze ATC is fantastisch zeg ! Ik ben niet zo thuis in die techniek maar vind 't altijd zo mooi en creatief om te zien.
