Peeled paint backgrounds


I am back after taking sometime out for family matters.
I have managed to create 3/5 ATC's for the May challenge over H E R E

I will complete the other 2 this week....The challenge set by Gaby a very talented mixed media artist was a peeled paint technique
My first try at it was a disaster as I left out one of the stages however my second attempt is the result on the backgrounds on these ATC's and I am thrilled with them ...thank you Gaby. x
Click on them to enlarge to see the peeled paint.

I wanted to bring a little shabbiness into them and son love the results.
The challenge ends today and a new one begins tomorrow but would just like to thank Gaby for setting this wonderful challenge and I know it took alot of us out of our comfort zone and the results are brilliant.... if you have never paid Gaby a visit me you should her work is amazing and so inspiring you can find her H E R E
The images are those of Lisa's Altered Art
Hope to get round to you all ASAP.
Also hope that everyone had a good Bank holiday.

Hey Chriss,

Glad you are back and things are getting back to normal in your life. You've been missed.

I have never been able to make what I consider to be a good peeled paint technique. And I don't leave out any steps, either (grin). I'm glad to see how good yours turned out. Way to go.

These ATC's are gorgeous, Chriss. Really lush. Hope all is ok now for you. My peeled paint ATC's are going in the post today (bit late, sorry). xx

I've missed you lately. Nice to see you back, Chriss.
Hope things are getting back on track.

Thanks for the kind words and for your compliment on my artwork. You’re making me blush!

Your ATCs are amazing. Love them all, but I think the first one has to be my favorite. This little girl is adorable!

Hugs, Gaby
