ATC Thinking In Red


ATC Thinking In Red
Originally uploaded by okanagan_spirit
This is an ATC I made for a special swap with the theme "red" I used a digital collage re-worked from one of the pages in my altered board book for the background of this ATC. I placed a torn strip of double sided tape along the top left side of the card and left the release paper on while I glued 3 colours of micro beads around the main image. Once the micro beads were dry I removed the release paper and added red and multi extra fine glitter.Hard to see, but there is a bit of Fired Brick Distressed Stickles in the transition from glitter to micro beads. The computer generated words are mounted on thick card and attached with double sided tape and the beads are strung and glued with Tacky glue around the main image.

Deffinately not the way you use glitter Yogi, but after he class I got brave enough to dig deep in the box for some. Never liked glitter much before, didn't like it getting everywhere, but I was able to keep it pretty tamed this time.

It looks great, Joanne! I like how you framed your altered head.
