More ATC's


Have been having fun making backgounds using a technique from Collage Discovery Workshop by Claudine Hellmuth.......basically you stick down a page from an old phone book with gel medium & before it's completely dry apply strips of masking tape then tear them off which also peels off a bit of the backgound paper. Before colouring the backgrounds with tinted gesso or walnut ink, I also applied strips of contrasting old music pages. The above ATC's were made using these layered backgrounds.
