Here is a small collection of atc's I made the last month. Some of the backgrounds are made with gesso, acrylic paints, stamps or gesso, inks and salt/sand. With added collaged papers or postage stamps.
And this is a collection of photo atc's. One of the swaps I am participating in, is about interesting mailboxes.

gel printing

Sometimes it is a good idea to clean your working area LOL I discovered more pieces of fabric which I have not yet blogged about. These 3 are black Kona around 14"x"14". The gel was covered with golden Lumiere textile paint and some sand/salt to create interesting patterns:

One of these pieces might be my starting point for the challenge Hot with the Sky's the Limit group.

Yes, I realise that I should have ironed these fabrics before I took the pictures :-)
