Paint the back of each Amazing Alterables house with red acrylic paint or color of choice.

Cover frame of each house with a sheet of book text. The book text acts as a unifying feature for the houses. Because they are a neutral color, they set the stage for the artwork while creating a cohesive look between the different houses.

Assemble with ATC card or painting.

Tips:

  • Want to create a mini gallery out of large paintings? Try scanning or photographing your paintings and shrinking them on your computer.
  • To create cohesion between the different paintings, use the same paint colors or motif for each painting in the series.
  • Make your houses a bit grungier by running sandpaper along the edges of the book text frames and houses.

    I just love this idea for atc sized cards. When I try a new technique, I like to use atc cards. But, other than letters, I couldnt figure out how to showcase my favs. This gives me a fantastic option. Thank you…beautiful job!!!

    What is an ATC card? Just wondering. I have never heard that.

      Hi Donna,
      An ATC card stands for Artist Trading Card. Typically they are 3×5 or smaller and can be traded or swapped with other artists as an example of their work. They are also small enough to incorporate into assemblage art pieces, or these stand-up houses!
