ATCs 11 - 13

The scanned image doesn’t really show off the texture in these three ATCs but textured they are. I had a lot of fun with these playing around with modelling paste to create some random textures on the small cards. Once dry I went with a combination of yellow, pink and red watercolour washes to add colour to the bases and then ink bordering to help the miniature abstracts to ‘pop’

the art challenge week 4

Money may not
