The last of the ATC workshop :)

I have finally completed the ATC workshop based on Bernie Berlin's book with the last two lessons 16 and 17. The first is a square tin for storing your ATC’s. I think I am going to start making one in the swap theme for each swap I am in. It is done by sanding the tin and then dry brushing on some gesso. Then you drop alcohol inks onto the tin, sprits with a little blending solution and dry it with a heat gun. Then scuff with sandpaper and stamp. The second one is a recycled tin can. This is also for storage. I might flunk this one because you are supposed to make the ATC label by embossing metal tape. I did that and I just did not like the way it looked so I peeled it off and used a metal tag to make my label. I plan to add a chain with a P38 can opener on it … the type that use to come on sea rations and can be carried on your key chain but for now, I did not want to get to far off the lesson …lol
