Mixed Media ATC

Hello everyone! 

It’s here to share an post for Expressions craft blog.

Today I’d like to show you some inspiration on Mixed media ATC’s using Expressions craft metallic paints. This type of background is so much fun to create and you can also use this technique in other projects like cards, layouts etc. 

 All you need are some different colors of Metallic paints, Black gesso and something to add texture like stones, beads, flowers,tissues, metal charms etc. 

 My first step was to create texture. I've adhered a tissue paper over the cardstock and added stones,beads, flowers over it using gel medium. Then coated it with a layer of black gesso and make sure you let it dry completely before you start adding color. 

 I have used Velvet orchid, My blue heaven, Tuscan red and bronze moon metallic paints. once it dries add some micro beads and finish it by adding sentiment
