We thought it would be fun to feature ATCs for our inspiration project. About a year ago all of us started participating with ATC swaps and we started with the theme of the four Seasons. I have loved receiving the little packets of miniature works of art made by all of my friends.
The ATC above is my most recent of the collection. I know it's Spring when the trees start blooming so I just had this picture in my head. First I painted my background with ink and my aqua painter, then I stamped the tree and leaves. I misted them with the gold smooch and white perfect pearl mist. After they were dry I added the pearl dimensional paint -- not sure of the brand. About the canvas paper it's a cool texture but it absorbs ink like crazy. So my colors were not coming out as vibrant as I wanted. I had to touch up the grass by sponging on green chalk ink. Even though the texture is cool, I think I would use multi media paper next time.
Here are the other ATCs I made in the series:
