Good day everyone! It's me Asmah taking you to another fun and simple quick tutorial today.
I used a piece of heavy drawing paper to make six pieces of ATC. Using PVA glue to adhere torn brown papers on the drawing paper for layering and texture effect.
Next I gesso-ed the surface and decided on what colors to apply next.
As you can see in the picture below I have some watercolors here that I planned to combine and experiment so I happily mix and brush away the colors...
and keep adding more colors...
until I feel satisfied at this point where I used bottle cap to press on the wet paint to make some circle patterns to add interest.
After the paint was dried naturally, I used modeling paste through Retro Circles ARTplorations stencil to have more striking patterns.
When dried naturally once again, I cut the paper into six ATC. My measurement is 3" by 4".
I used STAMPlorations bold sentiment stamps Explore and Create to make up the quotes. I also stamped part of butterfly wings randomly using Blossom Like A Butterfly stamp for interest.
Okay here's the change of plan as I reached tail end, I decided to highlight the word explore with silver pen. I could have just stamped it using silver ink pad in the first place or heat emboss in silver (yes, I hear you, lol).
And some up-close shots:
I hope I have inspired you today and I shall be back on Friday with a tag tutorial coming up next.
Until then. Happy exploring!
Hugs and smiles,
