If you are looking for what I left you on my blog, go down to the next post!
These 2 pieces below represent a few firsts for me.
My first time to make an ATC. My first time to create anything with the new digital grounds products by golden that I learned about in the class I won from Gail of Shabby Cottage Studio. My first time to win something on a blog contest. My first time to print on tin foil....yes this is actual tin foil. Not a sheet of some metallic paper or something like that. It is tin foil from my kitchen.
First I treated the tin foil with a layer of digital grounds for non porous surfaces and let it completely dry over night. Then I scanned a picture I had made in the past using encaustic wax. You can see it here. Then I printed it on the treated tin foil.
It came out looking really neat, but I had no idea what to do with it. So today I thought about it and decided that I would choose some silhouettes to print on it. I wanted to add something, but I didn't want to add anything with color to take away from the look of the background. So, I chose my images and again printed on to the tin foil. Then I took a couple of playing cards and used a glue stick to glue the finished images to the playing card... and here I have 2 ATCs! The second one is my favorite.
I really enjoyed making my first ATC's and I see myself trying many more firsts in my future!
Thanks for stopping by!
Peace & Love-
