A few weeks back I posted this amazing photo of a piece I was working on using the Tattered Angels Naturally Aged Paint System in Weathered Birch Fine Wood as I was so impressed with the finish compared to the real thing.
Canvas Corp have used my tutorial on their blog to demonstrate how easy it is to use the kit. You can find the full tutorial on the Creative Studio Blog .
It’s been many years since I hosted and swapped ATC’s. I used to love these little pieces of art so much. What’s not to love? They’re quick to make, not at all intimidating in size and great fun to swap.
When Christine from Canvas Corp asked me if I’d organize a swap for the team I jumped at it, take me back to the days of real post please and making art in mini form.
I gathered a group together and gave them all a posting list. They had no idea who would be sending to who to keep it a lovely surprise. It was so lovely to read the chatter and see how everyone was getting on via our Facebook group.
Back in my own studio I set to work creating my master board which I cut into ATC’s. They had to reflect my personal style so of course I chose to use my favourite colours with a touch of mixed media thrown in.
I say quick but in the end it turned out to be a bit trickier than I thought. To make the image balance exactly upright I had to keep moving the little peg around until the phrase in the centre sat perfectly horizontally. Thank goodness for the little peg!
All of the papers are from Canvas Corp and are from their Baby Collection and as I’m a lover of fussy cutting I had no problem in cutting out the cute pram from the sheet.
The card is now on it’s way to a very special new family member.
