Bloggerette Sorority - Rush!

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!


  1. Love the trading card! Looks like you are very talented, so glad you joined the sisterhood!
