Welcome!

This is my place to share my creative bits and pieces. My art has no rules, no limits and absolutely no order. My projects change with my moods but for the last few years, my main focus has been paper art. Cards, collage, mixed media and as many techniques as I can get to. My inspiration comes from everywhere.

I hope you enjoy your visit.

DOTTY EDGES

A sampler card for you showing Dotty Edges. No rules for this other than placing dots around the edge of a design. I chose to extend the colour to the edge of the cut out and then to match the dots to the colour. Had I coloured just to the frame and left the border white, it would have a different look. That's the beauty of techniques with more than one method.
The colour for the image began with chalking and then I watercoloured ink into areas I wanted darker. This shows the card against a light background and this one.....
is against a dark background with the flash. The first photo shows truer colour.
This is another version using Dotty Edges. I used Spotlighting and then the dots to cover the circle edges. Another fun technique and I'm sure you could find many more samples online.

Thanks for looking and I hope you have a spectacular day!
