Mission Accomplished for Week One - Yeayyy!

I finished my ATC for week one of Project 52! It was so much fun! Here it is:
I used the technique for backgrounds that I learned in Dina Wakely's journaling class. I first painted the playing card with gesso and put some texture in with bubble wrap and my paint brush. Then, after that dried I painted several layers of pink and orange paint, followed with some brown paint to bring out the texture. Other materials used include a piece of a dictionary page, fabric, a star sequin, some thrift store yarn in hot pink and my ATB labelmaker. On the back I put the journaling, which was pretty much quoted right from yesterday's blog post - that made it easy!

Now to clean up my scraproom - yikes. Who would've thunk that making a tiny card would create such a mess???

That's it for today folks, but I'll be back tomorrow with more news! Take care!
