Spring Time ATC

This is another quick ATC that I've created just to resembles the season of spring. Here are the steps to this ATC.

1) I've used the
Stenciling with Gesso" technique to create the background of this ATC.

2)Later, I've distressed the edges of the ATC using the scissors technique and inked on it.

3) I've added two images of clocks to it which I've coloured using some distress inks and doodling. The clocks resembles "time" in this ATC. I've also used some crackle accents on the clocks to give a glossy surface. I do actually prefer glossy accents but I could not get my hands on any of it here locally.

4) To add more interest, I've added some metal chains to the clocks and stamped and heat embossed on the leaves. The leaves and the flowers resembles "spring" in this ATC.

Hope you all liked this ATC. Happy Spring!

Hi ulla,

Gesso is a liquid or material used normally for base coating on canvas, wood or paper. You can find them under the brand "FolkArt" and some other art supplies stores.
