Slide Mount - ATC

Hi all.
I'm M. Carmen, from Spain, and this is my first contribution to this fabulous blog.
Hope you like what I do.
You're invited to visit me at "Hecho a mano"

I recently bought the book "Artists' Journals and Sketchbooks", by Lynne Perrella and among so much techniques and interesting projects, she shows how to alter a slide mount in very different ways.
I incorporated mine on an ATC and I'd like to show you how I did it.
An old slide mount, including the film
Tissue paper or napkin
Mod podge or similar
Acrylic paints
A film sized image
Mulberry paper
Tim Holtz’s word keys or any other embellishment.
A Background stamp
Embossing powders and versamark

Take the film off the slide frame
Glue the frame with a mixture of Mod Podge and gold paint.

Put a layer of a napkin over it and continue glueing and painting over. Let it dry.

Glue the image over the film strip, letting the holes uncovered.

Stamp the background over a black cardstock and emboss it with clear powders.

Using the embossing resist technique, paint over the whole card with gold acrylic paint. Before it dries, rub smoothly over it with a damp piece of paper or cloth, so the image reveals the black background.

Mount the film strip over the slide frame
Tear a piece of mulberry paper and glue it to the cardstock.

Mount the slide over the mulberry paper and embellish it with a Tim Holtz's word key

That's it! What do you think? Thank you for stopping by.

Just wanted to say I only found your site today and it’s really cool. You’ve been very busy and have so many good ideas. Your creations are really cute. I write a London based crafty e-zine and blog named Extremely Crafty Ideas at Would love to hear what you think. You and some of the other card crafters I’ve recently found have inspired me to write an upcoming card craft e-zine!
