Lovely Ladies ATC's

Hi Everyone, Danie here today with a ATC Post using some of the wonderful products available from Altered Pages.

I started where I often start by applying torn paper to my ATC back.  I chose some neutral and vintage papers from some of the Glitz Paper Collections and Vintage Text Pages, which I adhered with Gel Medium hence the shine you can see in this photo.



Next I added a lot coat of Gesso.


It's Spring here in Australia so I was drawn to work with my Gelatos in the Paper Flowers Kit which come in four different Spring like Shades, Lemon, Snow Cone, Metallic Grape and Metallic Melon. Apart from the Gelatos, this kit comes with lots of paper flowers for you to artfully color and add dimension to.  It's worth checking out.



While the Gesso was still wet I added some of each color to my fingers and rubbed this randomly over the backgrounds of my ATC's.  After doing so I took a little bit more Gesso and lightly brushed this across the surface.  I then allowed this to dry.


Taking images cut from the Lovely Ladies Collage Sheet it was now time to embrace possibilities and play around with placement, added touches etc.



Deciding what to combine with each image sometimes takes a little time, but my advice is to simply follow where passion takes you.




You can add further scraps of paper, die cut and other collage images, stamping, text, ribbon, your choices are endless.  

I love the combination of the black and white images I have used today with my Spring Like Background and I hope this inspires you to Embrace Possibility Today also.
