last month i painted this windy ocean atc on grunge board. i finally decided what to do with it this month, when I was about to toss out the top sheet of paper in my desk blotter pad that was covered with paint streaks from various projects.
in this piece of painted scrap paper, i suddenly saw the perfect backdrop for this atc. i cropped the best 4x6 section and inked the edges. i placed a smaller piece of yellow handmade japanese tissue paper on top. then i painted and burned a piece of lutradur, inked the curled edges with a gold leafing pen, and layered that under the atc.
i found a really deep white shadow box frame on sale, placed a few seashells inside, and voila!
