Guest Project by Paperiliitin: A set of postal ATCs

A set of postal ATCs

Moikka! It’s Riikka here again to share another guest project! In my first project I used just a touch of paper for the top of the doll, but this time the project is made entirely out of the lovely papers. I only added some mediums to add some layers in the makes. 


The inspiration to these cards came from the lovely postage stamps I had in the box. As a child I used to collect stamps and enjoyed soaking them loose from the envelopes. They are a thing of beauty! There’s usually so much detail in them, they are tiny works of art on their own. To give them a chance to shine in the project, I used them as the focal point. 

I layered some papers for the backgrounds of the cards using a wonderful medium called gel medium. It’s one of my must-haves. An adhesive beyond comparison! I also used watercolors and plain pencil in my cards. Both are also things I often use in my makes. A simple pencil is a versatile tool and watercolors are handy for many techniques.  

Like the first time, I also recorded a video for these cards. It’s a step by step styled, but I’m sure you’ll be able to follow the process! If you have any questions, I’m happy to answer them.

I’ll be back with yet another project shortly! Ta ta for now! 
Xoxo Riikka
