Glow ATC
Today's ATC is Glow.  

The background is a photo copy of the back of an old photograph with interesting typeface, then I sprayed Adirondack color washes and lemon zest dylusions ink and let it mingle.   I heat set the inks then placed a packing tape photo transfer of this sweet gal onto this colorful card.

Next up, embellishments, my favorite part of any project!  The yellow flower is from Recollections topped off with a sparkling flower from my stash of bling-y things.  Glued down with Aleene's tacky glue, so you know its not going anywhere!  

The golden lanterns are German scrap from ARTchix, which I outlined with a black gelato and filled with yellow gelato.  Now all elements of this ATC glow, don't you think?  Last but not least a black Dymo label.  GLOW.

Whenever trying out new products, such as the spray inks, I like to experiment and use them on ATC sized scraps of paper or cardboard. 
I've learned so much by doing this and somehow I don't feel intimidated or wasteful by trying techniques on a pile of recycled paper.  

What's got you humming and happy right now?

Hope you're having fun. 


  1. I like the golden glow. Makes me think of summer and fireflies. Lovely

  2. I thought glow before even starting it. Funny how these things begin, isn't it?


Thanks so much for stopping by!
