2018 #1 ATC's with EEG Sneak Peek {by Claire Snowdon}

2018 Topic 1: ATC's


Prepare yourselves! Emma Godfrey has taken her design style into a completely new direction: Vintage! Now that she is living in Portugal, she has been snap-happily taking photos of her local environment, and those emblems , doorways, patterns are reflected in her new designs. You don't get to see them in full today, but Claire has used a few of the images on this ATC which will give you a taste. The full reveal isn't far away ~ Leandra

Hi everyone, it's Claire Snowdon here with you today, and I'd like to share a couple of exciting sneak peek ATC's using Emma Godfrey's new stamp release...


As you can see Emma has gone for a very different style for this release!  These are just a few of the images that I was able to share today.


I used a combination of Grunge Paste, PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Paints and Infusions to create the ATC's.




For additional texture and interest I added some cotton in both black and white and I also distressed the edges of the ATC's too.



ATC's are a great way to explore opportunities to use new products and techniques.  They are a fab size and can be created in no time at all.  Please have a go at joining in with the first challenge for 2018 and I hope you are all looking forward to the exciting new releases Paperartsy have in store for you!

Thanks, Claire xx
