Hello, I would like to share a set of 3 ATCs I made for Shirley as last month’s ATC swap on Junk journals junkies and Mindful Art Facebook group.
The theme was the letter ‘M’ and I chose to go with flowers.
I painted grey board ATC blanks with white gesso then a coat of Townhouse Teal followed by over stamping and stencilling to give the background depth and interest. The flowers, all from IndigoBlu, were stamped in black and then they were painted in white gesso. When dry, each flower was painted with colour using IndigoBlu paints, shading as necessary and allowed to dry, they were then outlined with a black acrylic pen and a white pen added highlights.
The edges were sponged with black Distress ink and the flower names were printed and matted and glued as seen.
I had a great time making these and hope my swap partner, Shirley liked them – hers were fab! Next month’s swaps are announced tomorrow, if you haven’t already and are on Facebook join Junk journals junkies and Mindful Art Facebook group.
Take care, Kay
