Hello! I'm so happy to be making my first post to the Altered Arts Magazine Blog!!
I made 2 ATCs today, using a paper napkin technique that I wrote an article about for Altered Arts Magazine.
I coated the ATCs with Matte Medium, and placed the napkin face down onto the medium. The other 2 layers of napkin come off easy that way. Then go over the napkin with another layer of medium and you get a beautiful background!! I sanded the edges of the ATC, and any loose napkin will come off here. Then, I went around the outside of them with Prima "Wood" color ink. I glued on a piece of corrugated cardboard, a distresses a piece of book paper and an inked bit of gauze. Last was a single mini rose. I wrapped it up in a nice piece of rope, and I tied it with a bow!
I really hope you enjoy our new blog, and visit us often!! Tell your friends! There are exciting things coming soon! We love your comments!!
Have an awesome day!!
