|Using PVA glue stick down paper scraps to a backing paper/cardstock.|
|Add a few drops of Orange Paint (I have used Deco Art Fluid Acrylics) and brayer over papers. |
Using a Fluid Paint allows for the designs of the papers to easily show through.
|Take a wet (with water) paint brush and ensure areas where papers meet and overlap are covered with paint.|
Then dry with a heat gun.
|Using black paint, add further detail with a stencil. Allow a few seconds before taking your brayer and rubbing over stenciled design. This gives my background a more distressed look. Once more dry with a heat gun.|
|Your background is now ready to cut to size. As already mentioned above I am using this to make some ATC's.|
Once cut to size I used my Rusty Hinge Distress Ink to Ink the edges.
Because Halloween Eve is very near, I decided to use this theme but do not fear, as cute is the type of imagery I am using tonight, nothing too spooky to give you a fright.
|Select, cut out and decide on the images you wish to use and their placement.|
The images I have used are all from Altered Pages Collage Sheets.
|Stick down and add finishing touches such as other paper strips, words and embellishments|
I have added a touch of DecoArt Metallic Lustre to these ATC's.
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Halloween!
