Collage ATC's

  In my ATC group, the Feb. theme is collage.  I had to do lots of looking on You Tube and Pintrest to get ideas for this theme.  I finally made a 'masterboard', and cut that into smaller ATC sized pieces.
  I will show the process after the ATC's.

                                            Butterfly stamp by Unity (Gracielle Designs).

                                                          Stamps by Unity Stamps.

 Here is how I made the masterboard- most of the pieces are from magazines, some of the pieces are DP.

 I glued down all of the pieces with Mat Gel Medium onto a 12 x 12 piece of cardstock.
Next, paint Gesso over the top of the dried Masterboard.

Wipe over the top with a baby wipe.

  I stamped a Unity stamp in Black Stazon over the dried masterboard. I could have added more paint colors over the top, but wanted to leave the back white and let the colors from the magazine pages take center stage.

 I used a Unity heart script stamp and embossed it in gold. I decided to stop here and embellish the backgrounds.
