Hi there, this week I’m sharing the ATC holder that I created for the recent Hochanda shows and it’s in my bright and zingy style using my favourite Dinky Stencil.
PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Acrylic Paints – Haystack, Pumpkin Soup, Tango, Yellow Submarine, Lavender
As with my Brusho Crystal holder I started with the base as it wouldn’t be seen unless upended and enabled me to be happy with the effect before embarking on the rest.
I sponged the base with the 2 shades of yellow paints and allowed this to dry. Whilst it was drying, I cut a strip of thick card and die cut 2 circles in it, slightly larger than the largest bubble in the stencil.
I used the homemade stencil and the bubbles stencil with the 2 shades of orange paint and the lighter yellow to add a bubble pattern all over the painted base.
Once the paint was dry, I stamped the dotty border round the edges using the hydrangea ink. I also swiped on a little of the lavender paint to draw all the elements together.
As I was now happy with my decorated base, I repeated the painting, stencilling and stamping on the remaining elements on both sides and happily they’re all a lot smaller and didn’t take very long at all.
Once all the pieces have been decorated, glue them together with some strong glue.
As you see, it’s a lot easier than you might think to create a lovely storage box for your treasured ATCs.
Have a great weekend and see you next week.
