This week I'm sharing some ATC’s I have made.

I stamped on card with versa mark ink and colored with a variety of Pan Pastel colours, used masks to create further interest in the background then added embellishments to finish.
Really looking forward to seeing your creations this week

Terry, hey there guys, I made a few notebooks again, it is for the Reunion that I was having on Friday, What I did was....I started out on the background with Gesso, to make it all even....

 Than the second layer was Light Modelling Paste with a nice stencil with Roses....

 When the second layer was dry I worked with some crackle to give the roses an extra detaill....and covered it all up with Iridescent Paste...
 With this notebook I covered the background with a fabby vintage paper and covered it with Distress Ink and brushed it with White Coarse.....

 Than I took a frame and colored it with the Blue Pearlescent PanPastel and in the middle I placed a nice butterfly.....
You wanna see another notebook with a different technique, than I suggest you check out my blog...

The products that I worked with are:
