Belated Happy New Year!

 Here we are at the end of January. This is a bit tardy but wanted to share my latest ATC swap. 
2017, Bring It On!

I played with Golden Heavy Body medium mixed with black acrylic paint to see
 what kind of result I might get. 

 Adding some Viva Inka Gold "wax" to show off the texture. It comes in a rainbow of colors, may have to get some others.

The red background was put on first with my favorite grid creator, hardware cloth. I use a stencil brush for the application of paint. Originally found in the man cave, I have several pieces cut to different sizes for different projects. One is the size of my journal pages so I can have a good background 
for writing in a snap. 

I have some good old fashioned stencils I used to apply the paste. That was a little messy & time consuming as each number had to dry before the next could be added. 

Given the strange year we are faced with, and the fact I'm retiring from my day job in April, I decided the cards needed one more thing. Bring It On! was printed on some old book pages and added for contrast & to let everyone know I'm up for the challenge.
