Good morning! So far 2019 has been a decently creative year. I've been getting back into trading ATCs and making cards. On my desk is a stack of papers ready to be turned into a Valentines Day mini album. Now, it's been a REALLY long time since I've made a mini album; hopefully The Muse cooperates.
But that's for another day. Today my share is an ATC for a paper doll themed swap. I love these Tim Holtz paper dolls. There's great variety in the pack. Here she is...my little dreamer.
I started with gesso'd Bristol paper and then added some embossing paste through a stencil. After that came some painting with glimmer mist, some splatters, digging into the stash of ancient patterned papers and a smidge of Distress ink...
I tried to capture some of the glimmery bits in the picture below. I used both Winter Copper and Olive Vine - nice vintage-y colors.
Now it's sitting on my desk waiting to be shipped off. What's on your desk today?
