I finally got a whole day in my studio to get some atc's made that I owe for trades plus some time in just for playing too! Here's a couple that I made yesterday before going to work to teach the texture paste technique ..... which went really well.... much better than I thought it would, considering they had a limited supply of pictures and even more limited in their choice of colours to use, the girls did a great job! Darn, forgot to take my camera again...promise to take it next time!
This atc is the sample that I did in class to show the girls how to incorporate their image, the texture paste & the mulberry paper. I had to wait until I got home to finish it off as I needed to use my Lumieres, though one of the girls had bought hers so I did use them a bit to show them the difference that metallic paints make!
These next few are the ones I made today.... some to trade....some to keep.....I STILL have trouble with the "Trading" part of Artist Trading Cards. I think I need to rename them AKC's....Artist Keeping Cards....lol I think it's probably because I tend to make one-of cards and try new techniques all the time so I end up keeping them to remind me what I did!
I also managed to get my 9 backgrounds made for a chunky swap that I'm doing with our ABC (Altered Book Club). We are doing a chunky each month with a specific theme so we make 9 pages, swap them all and end up with a themed little 9 page chunky each month! This month's theme is "Text"....can't show the pages yet though, firstly because I've only done the backgrounds but secondly because I know a couple of the girls in my group read my blog and I don't want to spoil the surprise on the swap night next week!
Teaching again on Tuesday night next week.....soot stamping this time and I hope the girls have got their "plier hands" ready....lots of jump-rings to attach to make a 3-tier wall hanging atc thing.
