This month over at Unruly PaperArts is all about recycling. Turning your Trash into something to Treasure. I am not down to do an article this month but that didn't stop me from playing along with the theme.
I have been wanting to create some ATC Folders for some of my various collections and have the covers match the theme of my collections so I started creating covers for my Oriental Themed Cards.
I started with the covers of a Watercolor Paper Pad that I had used all the paper from. And cut off a piece from the plastic front cover and heavy duty chipboard back cover big enough to house my ATC Sleeves.
I coated the Chipboard with Red Fluid Acrylic Paint.
The plastic front cover was coated with Gesso, than some red tissue paper, cherry blossom napkins and Red and Orange Fluid Acrylic.
My covers and sleeves are held together using 3 hinged rings.
