Some fun with watercolors and ATC's


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   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.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
