Journaling on my experience as a mixed media artist. I love trying new techniques. You might find anything from altered art like books, tip ins, ATC's, fat books, watercolors, scrapbooking, stamping, cards, antiques, potpourri. I hope to add items you enjoy for sale. I have been dabbling in art since I received my first box of crayons. I especially love the heritage or vintage look. judy

Arttechniques 25 for 25 ATC technique swap

I was creating transparency ATC's for Sherry Hulberts swap on Arttechniqueatcs yahoo group when I had a happy little accident. I was using Ranger Alcohol Inks for the first time and used glossy 4x6 photo paper from the dollar store. I didn't prepare enough so I grabbed another package and did more. Wow did they ever look different ! They dried more separated, with a raised velvety texture, and had dark lines like crackling in them. I had grabbed the matte finish photo paper. The easiest crackling I've ever done and a different effect from the glossy. So that's my technique for the swap!
