Use up your scraps on Mixed Media ATCs

How many of you have finished a project thinking… ‘I can throw all those scraps away!’
don’t! Keep them and use them! 

Our Crew members, Barbara Housner and Vicki Fortier show us how you can use your bits and bobs and turn them into beautiful pieces of mini art!

Barb Housner

‘I had made a journal page from the High Heels Mixed Media Origins paper and had some leftover shoes and paper. I decided to use it up and make ATCs with those cute shoes. They were the perfect size for ATCs.’ – explains Barb.

Materials used:
Tattered Angels Mixed Media Origins – High Heels
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist – Iridescent Silver
Tattered Angels Chalkboard Mist – Seven Seas and Teal High Heel
Tattered Angels Baseboard Mist – Iris
Gel Medium
Black Ink Pad
Phrase Stickers
paint brush

Cut out the ATC shapes and fussy cut the lace trim and shoes from the paper.

Spray the shoes with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist Iridescent Silver to give them some sparkle and shine.

Color the ATCs and lace with Tattered Angels Baseboard and Chalkboard Paint.

Adhere paper lace to the ATC bases with gel medium.

Add the shoes to the ATC bases with gel medium. Add stickers to each ATC.

Edge the ATCs with black Ink.

Quick, easy and cute – what more could you want?
