Microscope Slide Spotlight & others...

My class this fortnight is called Microscope Slide Spotlight.  I figured that as we used Microscope Slides not that long ago, everyone would still have some left over and this is another way to utilise them with your stamped images.  
 
 I'm sure everyone has done Spotlight Technique before, if not, you can scroll down about halfway down this page and click on the "search this blog" section, enter the word spotlight, then my previous posts will come up so you can see what this technique looks like.   As I said, using the microscope slides is just another form of it.   I used Twinkling H2O's as well as my Lyra Watercolour Crayons.  Both work equally well.   I also used both my little "X" Xyron machine to adhere the slides or alternatively, you can use Glossy Accents (or Dimensional Magic).   The good thing about the Xyron machine is your microscope slide will go straight through the machine and not break as it's a
straight-through feed.  Quick and clever that little machine is!!!
 
 
"Live Life in Colour"...

 
"Fragment"...
 

"Twist and Twirl"...
 

 
"Shimmer"... (the shimmery paper down the bottom is
actually wrapping paper!  I always keep my eyes
open for different papers/wraps that can be
used on my atc's)

 
 
These next few are from the previous class - Acrylic Paint & Distress Re-inkers.   Would you believe this is the first time I've used my Washi Tape?   I only have about 6 rolls, yes I'm deprived I know (or is that depraved???), but it worked perfectly on this atc and I wanted to try a couple of ways of using it so the girls can see you don't have to just stick it down flat.

I am happy to say I follow you but this is the first post to emerge. I have to wonder about cyber space and what ghost inhabit that world rather than my desk. i love you idea of using ATC's for techniques and hope to find some ideas beyond the usual.

Barb, just don't electrocute yourself!!! lol

Monica, atc's are a wonderful little canvas for trying out techniques as you can do something quite quickly and if it works well, do it again on a larger surface! Love ATC's!!!
