Finnabair Art Recipe – ATC set “Travel the Seas” for Prima Marketing
Hello my friends,
I’m sharing with you today an ATC set I was thrilled to create for the Prima Art Recipe this month. I absolutely love these products and the colour combo. The Art Alchemy Metallique are one of my favourites, along with the Art Stones and clear glass beads. There isn’t any secret that I adore texture and the art stones and glass beads are just perfect for that. Looooove it! 😊
So, I rolled up my sleeves and I started by applying a layer of white heavy gesso on a piece of watercolour paper. When this was dry, I came with another layer, this time I used modelling paste. I spread a generous amount of the paste with a silicone brush and while wet, I pressed another piece of cardstock on top and then, pulled them apart to reveal a fabulous texture. This is a very easy and quick technique, yet very effective. I dried everything with a heating tool and then, I cut the paper into ATC size. I created my composition on each card and glued everything down 3D matte gel.
My next step was to add paint to all of my cards and for this I used Art Alchemy paints Metallique – Coral Reef, Mermaid Teal and White Pearl– along with touches of Jade impasto paint and Metallique Lime Green.
As a finishing touch and highlight the texture I used Art Alchemy Sparks (Mermaid Sparkle and Butterfly Spells).
I hope you’ll feel inspired by my project and try to create your own mixed media cards using these fabulous products.
Thank you so much for stopping by!
