Often we create a really cool art journal page using vintage music sheet paper and think wow, we must be able to make something with this. I thought a full set of Artist Trading Cards would be so much fun to make and then trade as well.
Lay out your vintage papers side by side.
Start adding your layers of paint, let dry in between. Using your stack of ArtFoamies foam stamps randomly stamp all over the pages.
Add the stencils and using modeling paste create more dimensional effects on the page.
Using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L adhesive sheet, add a pre cut paper die cut. Using the top piece push down to get an even coat of adhesive on the back of the paper. Remove and you instantly have a sticker. Add to your page.
Now cut your finished papers in Artist Trading Card size, 2.5” x 3.5,” adhere them to a pre cut sturdy backing chipboard blanks. Once done you get to go crazy adding fun elements to make them unique. Here I used some wood cuts with fun images on them and some baubles I had in my stash.
