Fun with Glue ATC's

My Monthly ATC group had a theme of Glue resist this month.  I had fun experimenting........ this is a long post..........

 I made a template with a small heart punch and added glue through the punched shaped hearts to the background (with regular Elmers Glue).....let it dry, applied distress inks.....  The stamps are Michael Strong and SU.


On this one, I just scribbled on the glue and let it dry- the image is House Mouse, and it is colored with Copics. There are 3 layers of bobbin and 2 of the mouse.


Next, I took glue and spread it over a piece of bubble wrap- and let it dry before applying the inks.

  This image is Sweet Stamps, the sentiment is Create with TLC.


 This image is Inkadinkado.


 These images are Rogue Redhead.



A collage image from an Unknown source. Obviously the background is dotted with glue. Sentiment is Rogue Redhead.


On this image, I painted the Geisha faces with glue, then applied Distress Inks over the top. Then, I dabbed the glue off the faces. The image is colored with Copics. The image is from About Art Accents.


On this ATC, I drew 'U's'. Image is Prickley Pear and it is colored with Copic Markers



 On this ATC, I just added the lines with glue then added Distress Inks. The image is an Unknown digital image and the sentiment- Create with TLC.


These images are by Rogue Redhead.


 On this ATC, I took the glue and dotted it on and then rubbed it side to side with my finger- once dry I added Distress Inks. The image is the same as the ATC above- I am not sure who created it.


On this ATC, I dabbed glue on the ATC and spread it around with a patterned frosting spreader. There is a background pattern from the glue and that is why you see streaks in the tree. I stamped the image twice and cut out the word Serenity and the house. The image is by Artistic Outpost.

Thanks for stopping by!
