I'm M. Carmen, from Spain, and this is my first contribution to this fabulous blog.
Hope you like what I do.

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
A film sized image
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
