Guest Designer Project – Mixed Media ATC’s

Hello! I’m Sandra (also known as @creative.miss.mole on Instagram), and today I’m a guest designer here and wanted to show you my project. I created ATC’s in mixed media style for you.

For the background of the ATC’s I chose two stencils (“Vintage Damask” and “Tattered Diamonds“) from 13@rts and with the help of the “Silicone Brush small” from Finnabair I applied modelling paste.

After drying, the ATCs receive a layer of “Heavy Gesso black” from Finnabair.

Then I spread “Magic Paint” from Fabrika Decoru in the colour “Red Wine” on the ATCs, sprayed with water and painted a little bit with a brush.

Here you can see how the color looks like when mixed with water. 

While I put the ATCs aside to dry, I grabbed the “Paper Collection Victoriana” from 13@rts and cut out all the individual elements on the paper sheet “Steampunk Queen”. I for example love this fussy cutting, because it has something meditative about it…

After arranging and fixing the elements with foamtape I emphasized some watch elements with “Melange Art Pebbles” from Finnabair.

Finally I used matching “Victoriana word stickers” from 13@rts

Here you can have a closer look at all ATC's.
