Mixed Media Monday - Trinchies

This week over at Mixed Media Monday we have yet another new and talented guest host! This time it is Joan from Italy, and Joan is introducing us to "trinchies". These little pieces of art are 3 x 3 inch squares. Along similar lines to inchies (1 x 1 inch) and twinchies (2 x 2 inch). I found the trinchie a fun size to work on - they have a similar area as an ATC, but being square, they are also a little bit different. The piece I made is done on a Color Mist on deli paper background, which was overstamped with a swirl stamp in gesso. The image was a computer generated grey scale image, that I coloured with water colour crayons. Then there are some computer generated words and some yummy German Scrap pieces to finish the piece off. Thanks for a fun challenge, Joan.

So pretty, love the blues and the phrase.

I have to ask about computer generated images. What type of printer do you use? How do you glue it? do you seal it? I always fear the inevitable "smudge of home printed ink" When you get a chance, your input would be appreciated!!!
