Helloooooo. Anyone out there?

ATC Love gives you wings, originally uploaded by thekathrynwheel.

Hello fellow bloggers. I figured it was time to start my own blog. If I'm perfectly honest, I spend way too much time blog hopping and if I spent as much time on my art as I did 'researching' on the internet, I'd get a whole lot more done :-) However I come across so much inspirational and interesting stuff!

Today I thought I'd share an ATC with you. I painted the background with the gorgeous new acrylic paints from Claudine Hellmuth (Ranger). I used a chipboard heart with two layers of paint and a bit of crackle glaze sandwiched inbetween to give it a distressed look. I used Tim Holtz stamps and Ideology hardware, and german scrap wings. The rusty wire I got off e-bay (don't you just love e-bay?!)

I love these acrylic paints so much - the colours are fab and so vibrant and rich. I'm a complete colour freak so these really appeal to me. I have been stuck in a red / pink / orange rut recently but I'm sure it will pass eventually .........!

Thanks for dropping by.

Yayyyyy! I blogged!
