Imaginarium Designs :) :) :)

Hello Hello :)

Today I would like to share with you an ATC that I made at a recent retreat that I attended. Now please be kind as creating ACT's is not something that I am familiar with, but despite that I still wanted to share the creative experience with you, to showcase how awesome Imaginarium Designs is for making mixed media style ATC's :)

Currently Imaginairum Designs doesn't carry an ATC background but I have had a chat with Jane and she said that if you are interested just to contact her and she will more than happily cut an order for you :) :) :)

For my ATC I cut down a tag. In this next picture you can see the supplies I have used. I had pre-sprayed the heart sheet with white gesso spray.

After adhering the hearts to the ATC I applied a liberal coat of Viva Decor Croco Crackle [tip I was toooo liberal and the finish wasn't as nice as I would have liked]

The crackle medium was in fact way to thick and it didn't crackle as much as I would have liked.

When the crackle was dried I applied water color paint [Hero Arts] to highlight the crackle pattern.

I added a few extra splats of black paint to break up the starkness/contrast of the red paint. 

I have enjoyed this 'test run' of creating an ATC so I plan on having another go so keep your eye out for my blog post next month.

Cheers and I do hope you are having a great weekend :)
