Exposed!

I created these ATCs from backgrounds I had on my desk… They were already painted and coloured to a degree but I decided to use strips of masking tape before painting them black and wiping that off, to “expose” the layers beneath… For Take a Word this week!

However, I also laid down PVA glue (white glue which dries clear), to see what would happen then!! So, I got layers that peeled off and some that peeled back!! I then added a few of my colourful inchies from my 2nd Inchy Sheet (in my Etsy!) and a word, under a piece of book film, leaving half of each ATC “exposed”.

So, thanks to Ann’s description, I was able to join in the challenge by taking the “abstract” route as opposed to showing my knickers! 😉

    • Thanks Marit! There were a few layers underneath to start with but the masking tape is a fun way to add and remove texture! 🙂

  5. What wonderful juicy backgrounds. I have such a thing about layers. I like just making them in my sketchbook then waiting for the right moment to do something with them…

    Well I’m sure we didn’t need to see your knickers, so thank goodness for so many definitions for the word eh?

    Gorgeous pieces of work my friend.

    • Cheers Lisa… I am a background junkie too! I think that’s why I like the old art journalling so much! 😉
