  • Step 1

    Cover your ATCs with white gesso and dry.
    Create background interest using stamps and embossing powder, do it in a distressed way (the stamping must NOT be perfect)

  • Step 2

    Prepare all the embellishments:
    - cut some sequins waste
    - cut some words using dies
    - cover clay pieces with white gesso
    - cover metallic pieces with clear gesso

  • Step 3

    Build your composition and glue it, trying not to leave any residual glue, otherwise the paint won't stay. If accidentally you have glue somewhere, cover it with gesso.

  • Step 4

    Once everything is dry, spray your Starburst and dry. Repeat until you are pleased with the results, leaving some darker areas near the embellishments.
    Highlight with metallic wax.
