Today I'm attending an ATC swap at "the Grind" in Vancouver. This group meets monthly, but I haven't attended for several months. With shiftwork and other commitments, I just haven't had that particular Sunday of the month, free for ages!
I worked until the very wee hours on some new ATCs. Originally, I was trying to duplicate a background technique shown by Karyn Gartel on the Technique Tuesday site. Since I have an altered canvas that is almost due, I thought I might try this technique on that project. I practiced on watercolour paper so that I would have some neat background paper for ATCs.
I'm reasonably pleased with the results and I was able to use the backgrounds for my ATCs; they are the two ATCs on the extreme left of this picture. The paper isn't quite as vibrant as I would have liked, seems a little muddy to me. I'm not sure if that is a function of what happens when you are creating art at 4 o'clock in the morning or me just needing a little more practice !
