So, I'm getting into scratch art lately, but with a morbid little twist. I'm pretty excited at how these turned out, especially the heart. It's pretty simple. Scratch art for the image, recycled frames painted and decorated - then... happiness! Let me know what you guys and gals think, please!
P.S. Please ignore glare on brain piece...I could not do away with the glare fully! Also, I'm no Photoshop gal to edit it. If anyone would like to tutor, though... Wink

Cool twist to scratch art!  Do you start with a pre-patterned board or "blank" scratch art board?  It would be interesting to hear how you transfer your pattern to the board if you don't mind sharing Smiley

I'm really liking the heart (and the embellishments on the frame too)!

Hi there alteredmommy! Sorry for the delay in response, I just got back around to reviewing my posts. I probably over complicate this process, but once I have my page colored and painted, I print an image I want to transfer. Then I paperclip the two pages together and take a tiny box cutter to "cut" but not too deeply into the paint of the bottom sheet. I think go back and scrape the lines as wide as needed, using something like a tiny flat head screw driver.
If you know of a simpler way please share, as it can be time consuming.
