I joined the sorority right after the 'rush' challenge - the very first order of business. Even though I missed the original deadline, I wanted to complete the challenge - which was to take the sorority photo (see right side of blog) and make something with it - anything. I made this 2-1/2 inch by 3-1/2 inch Artist Trading Card. I used brayered paper for the background. The paper was heavy weight bond and acrylic paint was used. I decided I wanted to tint the photo, a technique that was used on many photos from the early 1900's.
To complete the 'rush' challenge, we had to post a photo of ourselves holding what we made. This is so that we can all get acquainted with each other. So here I am:
Disclaimer: This was taken at work, around 7:00 am and I don't think I was awake yet! LOL!
Anyway, that's my story and I'm sticking to it!
