Holy Hawtness!

Sparkling silver and gold, jazzy jewels and trendy slang are combined in this drawing that I made with Paris Hilton in mind. I have to admit that I really love Hawt with a "W"!

I found that printing on the shiny silver and gold paper was tricky with the Gocco. I don't recommend it. I think the ink had trouble clinging to a less porous surface so I got lots of sad sad smudgery. I made 50 printing attempts and only made 15 prints that were good enough to sell. Boooo!

Oh well, I know now that I'm no match for the shimmer. I would do it all over again though because this design just wouldn't be the same on regular paper. I felt I needed to go for extra glamour with this one.

I have thirteen up for sale on Etsy now.

Also, I'm excited to announce that I sold my first print at ArgyleWhale.Etsy the other day! Yes!

congrats on your first sale! i have been wondering about the gorgeous shimmery paper from the paper source, so it's great to have the heads up that it could be less than heavenly. hooray for experimenting though!
