Think Monday, Think ATC - Texture Effects




The theme for this week's Think Monday, Think ATC challenge is "Texture Effects". You can't really tell from the scan of these cards but they are textured with layers of gesso, gel medium and pages from the telephone book that have been applied and allowed to dry then torn off leaving some of the print. It is a long process but a fun one.

What a wonderful idea for texturing -- the telephone book!!! I mean, do you really call all of those people?!? LOL!! Seriously -- it's an excellent idea -- I love the girl sitting on the fish! Truly original and whimsical!
