Relax and make ATC Coins with Nuneka

Hi crafty people!!
Here I go again with another relaxing live stream class, something easy, fun and that you can swap with your friends. I decided to make some ATC Coins with very few supplies to show you you don’t need too many things to create something beautiful. This live class on Lindy’s YouTube channel will be today May 10th at 9 am PST (18:00 CET), but don’t worry if you missed it, because the video will stay on Lindy’s channel for you to check whenever you want.

To create my ATC Coins, I cut 3 circles 2 1/2 inches in diameter.
I used scrapbooking paper with a very soft design, but you can use watercolor paper too. Whatever you chose, make sure to apply a nice coat of gesso, so the colors will flow easily instead of being absorbed by the paper.
Of course, we need a nice interesting background, so I applied texture paste through a stencil and dry it very well.
And here it comes the magic: with just two Lindy’s colors, we’re going to create a whole range of shades. Make sure you check the video to see how to do this.

This time I decided to use two Magicals: Pretty in Pink Pink and Gag Me with a Spoon Gray, two colors from the Totally 80’s Magical Shimmer Set. This pink is a true pink color, with tiny particles of fuchsia and orange that may appear in any moment creating a wonderful effect, and it has a beautiful soft silver shimmer that is perfect to be combined with Gang Me with a Spoon Gray. This gray is pure magic: it’s a soft silver-gray with particles of blue and sienna brown, with silver shimmer. Make sure you click on the photo to enlarge it, so you can see all the beautiful tones a tiny amount of this gray can create.

Once we have the main colors of the background, it’s time to create a dreamy effect. For that we need Lindy’s white color: Magical Shaker Frozen Jack Frost is a must-have. It’s very convenient to make your own white because adding more or less powder you can decide how much transparent your color is. I just put a bit of water on my non-stick mat and added some Magical powder, mixed and made big splatters here and there. I let them for a minute, reacting and blending a bit with the background colors, then I dried with the heat gun.

And I said very few supplies, right? Thread, some die-cut pieces, fussy cut butterflies and word stickers, that’s all for the composition. But even though they are few things, it doesn’t mean the project has to be dull. I used the die-cut pieces and Chrome Doesn’t Pay Chunky Embossing Powder to create a gorgeous metallic-look embellishment, which matches with the silver shimmer in the background. I put the pieces together making three different compositions and glued a tiny amount of glitter. Ready to swap!
