excited about ATCs •••

art on a small scale is so great. you get to experiment with new mediums, techniques, colors, textures, surfaces.

this is two atc's in one...the top layer is a sheet of lutradur, which is attached only by the brad in the upper right corner to the bottom layer, which is timtex.

i used acrylic inks and india inks...with no brush. i just painted with the little eyedropper that comes on the cap of the ink jar.

i just love how these surfaces absorb the inks and allow them to naturally bleed into each other.

this one is available for trade!
