Artist Trading Card "Fly"

I have really been enjoying making ATCs again lately. They are the perfect quick and easy project to get my craft fix when I'm super busy.

I have been obsessed over UmWowStudio Chipboard (and flair) lately. This "Fly" piece is chipboard that I covered with gesso and really thick & chunky black glitter.

The owner of UmWowStudio, the super-talented DeeDee Catron has graciously given me a discount code to share with my viewers. Just use code JennE20 at checkout and get 20% off your whole order! The chipboard is super high quality and it has a darker finish than a lot of chipboard and wood veneer you see around. Which is what I love about it. Plus, they have so many cool and unique pieces to choose from.

We are using transparent layers, transparency, fabric, stitching, text, vintage book text, wood, fibers, vintage sewing patterns, tissue paper, machine sewing, encaustic, weaving, scribbles and mark making, browns, tans, whites, creams, vintage colors

I used the "trust" chipboard piece as my wood element because it looked a …

"Create Joy" || Mini Junk Journal

I have the first page in my mini junk journal to share today!

It is on ledger paper which I made sure to cover with clear gesso so the paper would hold up. it is a very Dina Wakley-esque page, with a splot of Dylusions Ink and some magenta paint. It came together very quickly, which is exactly what I wanted for this 'art everyday' venture.

To see exactly how I made it, you can watch the process video at the end of this post. There is also a complete supply list with links to everything I used on this page.
