Hello-Happy-Smile ATC set

Hi Everyone, 
Here is a set of 10 ATC's that I created and sent to a few people around the world who are part of an ATC exchange.

I never thought I would like to make ATC's as much as I do.
I think its the sense of accomplishment in a very short period of time that makes it so fun to do.
Since they're so small, you don't have to put a lot on them to make them beautiful.

The background of these ATCs was done using a Gelli-plate. I used an 11x8.5 water-colour paper and created a fun mono-printed background using Gelli-printing.

The backgrounds were created on a live show on my Ustream channel.
The show was done in spanish as my audience was from South America. However I did add subtitles after it was recorded. Just press the CC subtitles button and you will have the english translation.

Here is the video below:

Once I cut the background into 10 ATCs, I stencilled the DecoArt Swirl stencil with white heavy gesso and added some embellishments and words. The hearts were also cut from the leftover background paper, so nothing went to waste.

Watercolor Paper
Acrylic paints- different colours
Tim Holtz black soot distress ink pad
Altenew die-cut words
Prima say it in crystal swirls
Prima Finnabair white heavy gesso
Prima Finnabair soft matte gel
DecoArt swirl stencil
Prima Anne Marie Epoxy stickers

Thank you so much for visiting my blog
Have a fantastic day!!
