Sun and Sand ATC

I'm always behind on my art stuff. The July Collage Stuff ATC swap is a beach theme, "Sun and Sand." Here's my design. I took a white matboard ATC blank and sprayed it first with Blue Patina Perfect Pearls Mist. I dried it with my heat gun as I can't stand around and wait on anything to dry! Then I sprayed Blue Raspberry Perfect Pearls Mist and dried that with my heat gun. The PP Mists are very transparent and soft. I love them! I always have some bubble wrap around, so I dabbed some gold paint on the bubble wrap with a Ranger Gold Paint Dabber (love this) and pressed the misted ATC blank onto the paint randomly. I scanned in an old dictionary page that had "beach" at the top, sized it, printed it out and trimmed it to size. I used the gold paint dabber around the cut edges. The girls are from the "Lazy Days" collage sheet. I haven't used these images before and thought it was about time I did. I also edged it with the gold paint dabber. I painted the inside of 4 Clear Iris Shell Sequins with you guessed it, the gold paint dabber. I found out quickly that the sequins melt with the heat gun if you aren't careful. I was trying to get the paint to dry faster. I used glue dots to adhere the sequins in the 4 corners. I like numbers and random stuff, so I cut up a yellowish UK bus ticket and used the numbers as shown. I dug through my stash and found the gold alphabet stickers to make the word "play". The ATC base is also edged with the gold paint dabber. Thanks for stopping by!
