Vintage triptych for UK Scrappers Altered Forum
I chat to a lot of other people interested in collage, altered art etc on UK Scrappers Altered Art Forum(http://www.ukscrappers.co.uk/boards/group.php?groupid=151&pp=10) which was started by my friend Linda. We have a weekly challenge and news on swaps etc. There is an Art Raffle at the moment..check out this link if you want to join in as it sounds fun (http://www.ryan-kesler.com/swaps/ArtRaffle/index.php) This weeks challenge was to make a triptych. I had a go using some postcards I had picked up from the Crafty Individuals stand at the Port Sunlight Stamp Show. The backgrounds are painted and stamped with various stamps. I also stamped on emptied dried teabags with brown ink. I quite liked the way they add a subdued texture to the background. I have added the words faith, hope and charity to each segment.
