I’m up early and still feeling poop as I adjust to medication but thought I could do something positive and write up a blog post. Here are three ATCs made for a swap where the theme is The Blues. I went for a sea theme but started by grabbing three off cuts which had blue themes.
The first and third were gelli print off cuts and the middle one was a palette with some modelling paste through a stencil.
I completely transformed them to make my atcs… I can’t believe how differently they ended up from these starting points.
The one on the left was the one on the right hand side. I added some of the rich turquoise ART alchemy paint and then some embossing in a blue using the Indigo Blu stamps. I then heat embossed the seahorses and the sentiment in white powder.
The middle one got a coat of the decoarts Ultramarine blue over the base and then a few layers of scraps before I added the fish and sentiment.
The final one was the one on the right. I added the opal magic blue/pink all over it and then added some stamping and embossing randomly with the blue powder. Then I added the layers of scraps and the focal image of the seaweed and sentiment.
All of them I trimmed or tore them to a slightly smaller size and then added them to a light blue base.
Really pleased with how they all turned out.
