My 4th ATC Swap for this round of ATC's was themed Glue Art. I haven't played with hot glue a lot but thought, lets give is a go. I only needed to make one ATC but figured since I had the glue out I would make a few. So I made three. One is on its way to my swap partner. The other two I kept...for a future swap?
This first one I call - Shipwrecked.
I kept to muted bronze tones. Really happy with the way it came out. I look at it and get the feeling of a shipwreck, like treasure or a fishing net...don't know why but feels like a ship wreck.
This next one was named after AJ influenced my thinking about the finished appearance. When making it I was just playing with the glue to see what I could do.
The color choice came from my preference for pinks and purples and then just played til I was happy.
It's title ( Thanks AJ) - Life
And my third and final Glue Arts ATC - at least for now is called Coral Reef.
From the outset I had the idea of coral. So I tried to make the glue work with me and then used colors that I think of for coral and under the sea. The photo really shows the red. In life the red isn't so prominent. I loved this one as it really achieved what I set out to do. And those who know me know I rarely start out with a specific idea. I generally just roll along til I find the outcome I like.
I really hope the recipient likes the one I chose to send, if they dont I would happily send one of the others.
Would I play with glue to make art again? For sure!
Thanks for stopping by to visit my creations.
