That's cool anitacj -- I've often eyed those kits, but I've never bought one for myself.  I might have to next year.

Another thing about these art kits they have some art supplies already with it.Foam stamps,stencils,paint,etc.But here's another tip  I put very thin piece of paper tape around the ATC I'm working on.And do everything but where the paper tape is covering it.Then I take the tape off and I have a neat edge that I can paint or use markers on.The edge is neat & trim & the tape doesn't hurt the card. Smiley.Just thought I'd share with everyone.lol  Cheesy

Oh my, 68 pages without a break....my head is spinning  Shocked

I love everyone's ideas here is one of my own....
I started to use scraps of watercolor paper for my paint pallet for my craft paint, when I am done with the project I just paint the rest of the watercolor paper, letting colors mix and mingle.... and I will use these scraps as ATC backgrounds some day

Hey ladies (and gent(s))  I don't know if any of you guys remember my previous posts in this topic about my wee little craft shelf crapping out on me, and my hunt for gesso, but I have up dates!  One day while dumpster diving I found THE BEST desk to use for crafting, it's basically a tv stand with a rotating top (good to swing out and use for sewing)  and a ton of shelving inside with little nooks and crannies built into the doors for extra storage.  the front has cabinet doors, one of which is glass-ohh fancy lol.  I also found and promptly fell in love with gesso, now I know what all the fuss was about!  I've already started crafting and you can see my latest attempts in the more art board under Death Before Dishonor and Collage for my Dad.  Hope you enjoy!  Now to make some new ATC's and try out an ink jet transfer....

O.k I had to do some tumbleweeds for my church so I used some spray paint that makes things look like stone.Sooo Idea came to me to use a stencil & the same spray paint on a ATC  Wink.And it came out fantastic.Make note to self  (do more experimentation). Grin

CraftyImperfection - so glad you got shelf stuff taken care of - that is cool that you found such a good replacement  Grin

anitacj - never tried that spay for a atc - good idea - usually like you were I just use it for other things.

Here's a very tiny tip.Go to a paper supply store (think college) and ask for editors tape.It's very thin almost like 1/8th in. wide.Place it just a little from the edge inward on the ATC.Then paint,user markers,or whatever to color it in.Remove tape and voila clean edges.Or I guess if you can't find it use a ruler? Cheesy.Then put emphanar (excuse spelling) on inside .I'm thinking of using spray paint that looks like stone on edges.Maybe not sure. Undecided

Has anyone tried using the paint they use for glass painting or suncatchers?I want to try it on acetate for a ATC but I dont' know how it would work out?The technique is called reverse glass painting but I'm going to try it on a ATC.(note to self more experimentation). Sigggghhhh.
