Mixed Media ATC's To Decorate Your Cards

Happy Saturday everyone... I'm up on Art Anthology's blog today to provide some inspiration with ATC's.
Atc's are a great way to add a little bit of your art to a card to give away.... let's get started. 
I created the ATC's first by cutting chipboard and then adding textures with tissue tape, old book pages, and modeling paste through stencils. 
I also added some texture stamping and then began to include my sprays and paints. Below is a complete step x step process for the ATC's. 
Butterfly images were stamped and then water colored with my sprays and cut out to be placed on the ATC's. Then matted with a coordinating cardstock. 

My sentiments were stamped on the white card  and ATC's were adhered to the front. This is a nice little gift you can give someone for note cards or all occasion cards. 
I hope I have provided you some inspiration for your ATC's creating. Get out those little canvases and give this a try. Happy creating !

This project is entered into the following creative challenges.

Altered Lamp Steampunk Style

Hi everyone... hope you are having a creative month. Today my project is for Art Anthology featuring their wonderful Rust Paste Set.  
I purchased a lamp recently at a home decor store and wanted to alter it for my craftroom, here is how it began. 
I also purchased these children goggles at the dollar store to alter as well. 
With the addition of lots of metal pieces from my visits to the junk yard, thrift stores, etc. and chipboard pieces, as well as items I picked up at the hardware store, I think the lamp came together well. 

Art Anthology's paints are so versatile and easy to use. This piece was difficult to photograph but I hope you get the idea. 
Here is a shot of it outside, and the complete tutorial can be viewed HERE for my process. 
Hope you enjoyed and are inspired to use our Rust Paste Sets. To purchase them you can go to our shop HERE
