Some fun with watercolors and ATC's

Welcome! 

I was just playing around the other day with my cool water color pencils and water brushes from Royal & Langnickel.  I created a few ATC's with the above supplies along with collages from Alteredpages.com.   I had the thought in mind that I could add them easily to a card for future use.  There is no theme here, just fun painting, paper piecing and assembling...on a small ATC sized scale.   And, here they are...


 
 
I lightly colored areas of each collage image with the water color pencil to emphasize one or two focal points.  The pencils gave me the preciseness of a pen or colored pencil with the end result...water color. 
 
   
 
   
 
   
 
 
 
In each ATC I embellished with stamping and embossing,  gold leafing,  layering vintage text and tags within the ATC.  All the tools needed to get this look are easily at your finger tips.  Please see below for a more detailed supply list.  
 
Remember this month Altered Pages is partnering with Royal & Langnickel.  In celebration of that along with October being breast cancer awareness month we are giving away this beautiful Pink Art Journal.
          
To be entered into the drawing all you have to do is just place an order of $10 or more with Alteredpages.com.  The lucky winner will be announced on the blog as well as our Facebook page on November 1, 2015.  Good luck!!
Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a great weekend!
