Here is another set of ATCs I created for a swap organized by the Surface Design group on yahoo. I can't tell you how much I have enjoyed these swaps. What a great way to share your art and get some great little pieces in return.
I love puffy paint and have used it in many of my pieces to make rocks, trees, devil horns and several other things. In this first picture the original fabric is on the right. I then covered it with swirl designs by using puffy paint straight from the bottle. You need to let the paint dry completely before puffing so I let it set about 48 hours. I used a heat gun to puff the paint. You can tell puffing is done when the paint looses its glossy look. I rubbed lime green paint over the rough surface and after it dried I brushed it with Lumiere Super Sparkle. Finally I quilted the entire piece with a dark purple thread. One of the great things about puffy paint is that you can paint over it an stitch through it.
Here are the finished ATCs. Also shown is my ATC finder........ a little frame I created out of timtex to lay over the uncut fabric to see how a certain spot will look when cut to ATC size.
