Still trying stuff out.....

Don't you just love trying out new things and techniques? Well I do, and I had so much fun with it this week!!!
I made 3 ATC's with different techniques on it, man, that was just great!

On the first one, (on the left) I used the "transfer with gesso" technique, and I had a blast! It's really simple, all you need is gesso and a picture you've printed out with an inkjet printer. Wanna know more about it, just look here!

The second one (in the middle) is done with gesso and distress ink. My first one was not completely the way it's supposed to be, but hey, I'm just trying out here! The whole thing is explained here, in text and with a movie!

And then the last one (yes, on the right!!) is really cool to do! Supplies needed are masking tape, waterbased ink and clear embossing powder.. oh, and a heatgun, or as I did as I don't have a heatgun (yet), a toaster ha, ha! It's so easy to do, and if you wanna give it a try, just go here, and have fun with it!

That's it for today, time to quit the fun part and start preparing supper!! Thanks for stopping by again!!

Good to see you taking time out to have fun. Playing with gesso is fun & of all my crafting bits, it's one of my favourite "dirty toys"
