I guess this is the week of the ATCs, I felt like having another collection, the collection of fall. So here they come:
Yes four, I don’t know why, but four. I was beginning with a technique that I was falling in love with lately. I used pan pastels to colour my ATCs.
Nice autumn colours, aren’t they? Then I whitewashed them with gesso (regular gesso misted with water). I also added some border with a gel pen.
Next I used archival ink to stamp some image on my ATCs (Stampers Anonymous stamp). I applied some texture paste through my honeycomb stencil and some splatters with ecoline.
I die cut some small leaves from gelli prints and I ran them through an embossing folder to add to them more texture. I arranged them on my ATCs. I used a small abc stamp to stamp the word fall out. I distressed the edges and coloured them with brushed corduroy distress ink.
I added some more embellishments and a little cord bow to my leaves. Finally I applied my ATCs on a black ground and tadaah:
Isn’t that a wonderful time of the year?
