ATC Houses: Splatter Paint Technique
3 for 3 ATCs
Skill Level: #2 - Budding
Sign up by March 6th
Cards due IN HAND by April 10th
Hosted by Debra Claxton
These colorful little houses will be messy fun! Please make 3 ATCs that have a house on the card, or are cut in the shape of a house (must fit in an ATC sleeve). Your houses and backgrounds should feature splatter painting as a technique, which means at least half of your work should have that whimsical splotchy/messy look. You can splatter on any paper; colored card stock, stamped paper, patterned paper, text, etc... and you will need to protect your clothes and work surface!
Here are some samples, (not all have enough splatters, some have interesting shapes/details):
Examples of splatter techniques can be found here:
Please include an address label and $1 for return postage. International participants may send ephemera in lieu of postage, or an international stamp.
Skill Level 2 - BUDDING: Participants will be open to trying new ideas and materials, without necessarily being competent yet with their applications. Swap Hosts are encouraged to add the requirement of a technique or process such as creating texture, using crackle paint, doing photo transfers, painting with watercolor, etc.
