a poster board background for ATC’s.
Here’s how I made the full-size poster board Artist Trading Card bases:
I collaged book pages onto the board. I used DIY modeling paste with a stencil. After that all dried, I went over the whole thing with gray gesso. I used watered down craft paint in Bleu Turquoise. When dry, I went over most of the poster board with iridescent paint.
Then I used DIY alcohol shimmer sprays. Used a palette knife to smear white paint, then a rubber band dipped in watered down green craft paint. Then I painted lines in hot pink and orange. Finally finished up with black dots made by dipping the handle end of a paint brush into black craft paint.
The paint is still drying, so I’ll probably cut them out tomorrow-or later this morning actually.
After they are cut up I’ll add some ephemera, lace, ribbon, buttons, beads or whatever strikes my fancy.
Next up: scrap jewelry.
