Mixed Media ATC Cards

Hi Everyone, it’s Carisa Zglobicki with another guest post on the Crafty Power Blog! I have a fun project for you today using some great Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L products on mixed media ATCs.

Mixed Media ATC cards by Carisa Zglobicki

These are so fun to make and because of their mini size, they take really no time at all. As a card maker at heart, it took me a long while to tackle a big journal or canvas. I feel like working on these Artist Trading Cards took me back to my roots in a way because of their small size.

I started with three canvases and mounted them on ATC sized Art Squares by Inchie Arts. These mat boards are super study and were the perfect mounting for my canvas to withhold all the media I was about to use. Each one started with a layer of gesso and background stamping for texture. Then I added some color using paint. Each one I applied a bit differently.

or the one above, I also added Donna Salazar with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Brown Pigment Powder by watering it down with some water on my craft sheet and adding it to the top of the canvas, spraying more water and letting it drip down the page. I love how it grunges it up a bit yet adds some shimmer.

For others, I added some texture with  Donna Salazar with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Texture Ribbons  and Donna Salazar with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Girlie Grunge Gauze< that was easily adhered to my surface with Donna Salazar with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Girlie Grunge Art Medium. I love the Donna Salazar with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® E-Z Stars Runner Refillable Dispenser for adding glitter like I did on this one.
