Do you ever have those times in your creative life when you just need to step back and revisit a technique that you enjoy. I usually do this when I'm feeling particularly overwhelmed with the rest of my life. In this case, I took a pack of playing cards and layered gel medium, phone book pages and gesso on top of them until I achieved a look that I liked. The starkness of the gesso on the top layer allows the rest of the collage elements to just jump from the page. These atcs are my submission for the TGIF challenge this week.
