ATC backgrounds

If you are a subscriber of my youtube channel (if your not you should be. :D) You know I've been making ATC backgrounds for a swap next year. Yes I know a year away. but I'm doing it for an event here in Vegas, Pita Fest. And during the fest there will be some swaps going on, ATC's, tags and photo mats & inserts (one of Kathy King of paper phenomenon's creations) I'm participating in the tags and ATC swap.I don't know how many are doing the swaps, but I'm making a bunch.

Like all the other backgrounds I did, I start with stuff we get in the mail from Casinos here in vegas. On one side I glued napkins, the other side, book paper. then I gesso both sides. From there I use different colors of craft paints. and stencils. In this batch of the video I did, I used DecoArt craft paints. Also used Various stencils. The video of me doing these will be out June 11. :)

Americana paints used:
Citron Green
Bahama Blue
Calypso Blue
Peacock teal
Dragon Fruit
Lemon Yellow
Snow White
Lamp Black

Stencil used:
Americana stencil: Dangles
prima stencil. I don't know the name of it.
Dina Wakley: Spinners
Andy Skinner: Alphabet spaghetti and Snake's web

Would you believe I've not made an ATC yet? Shame, I know. Who knows, I might give it a try one day.
Your ATCs turned out nicely. Have fun swapping them!
