White Crayon Resist ATC Tutorial

Here is my first attempt to making a YouTube video. It took a while to play around with all the features on Movie Maker and YouTube. There is lots to learn. It will not take as long for my next video.

This is only one version of this technique. I'll make another video of my main version. Enjoy and have fun.

Summer Dragonfly ATC

Title: Summer Dragonfly
Date: August 2, 2014
Swap: Summer Dragonfly ATC
Here is another crayon resist ATC, but with a different twist. Here's how I did it:
  • White Artist Paper cut ATC size (2.5" x 3.5")
  • Use a dragonfly stamp with orange ink.
  • Trace outline of dragonfly with a Sharpie pen.
  • Color in dragonfly with white crayon. Make sure you press hard.
  • Sponge stamp over and around dragonfly with various ink colors.
  • Let dry for a couple minutes.
  • Watercolor the whole paper with various colors (I just used children watercolors).
  • Let dry completely.
  • Scrape off some of the white crayon on black areas.
  • Use a Sharpie pen to re-do lines of dragonfly in areas you want to stand out.
  • Cover with Gloss Medium (This what makes the dragonfly and colors pop)
  • Let dry and add another coat of Gloss Medium. Repeat. (3 coats is usually good enough.)
  • Glue cardboard (cut ATC size) onto the back.
  • Glue paper (cut ATC size) to the back of the carboard.
  • Fold wax paper around the ATC and place in book to dry flat.
  • Once it is fully dried, write ATC info on back... Title, Artist Name, Date Created, etc.
  • Place in a clear Card Sleeve.
Now you have a beautiful artistic ATC to trade. Have Fun...
