I started by making a photocopy of Bonnie's painting. Then I re-sized it making sure to leave a generous border so that my background collage would show. I gathered up scraps of scrapbook paper in shades of blue and one in brown. Then I tore them into strips. I tear the strips so that the white beneath the printed paper shows, it adds interest. Then using a glue stick I glued them into place. Be sloppy with the glue stick because the excess glue is going to hold your embossing powder in place. I picked Sapphire to give it a water splashed look. Then I poured the embossing powder over the collage and poured off the excess. I embossed it using a heat gun. I then mounted the picture on a couple layers of card stock to give it depth. I inked the outside edges with a dark blue ink pad and then glued it in place. I really like the way this turned out. I hope Bonnie does!
Once again I started this ATC by photocopying one of Bonnie's paintings. Then I selected two pieces of scrap book paper. The first being the print. It made me think of a tablecloth. Then I picked the border paper. I trimmed the print leaving a small edge of the solid color paper showing, and glued them together. Then I found a ribbon that complimented my papers. I made a bow and then attached it by gluing the ends behind the two scrap book papers. Then I glued it to card stock hiding the edge of the ribbon between them.Then I trimmed away the white background of the painting, leaving only the peppers. I used a cranberry ink pad on the edges. Then I mounted them using foam squares, to lift them from the card. I hope that it doesn't take Bonnie too long to recover from the shock of someone doing this to her art, and that she still thinks of me as a friend.
