This category contains all technique articles created as part of the imagine magazine e-article series. Each technique is fully illustrated with an artist trading card (ATC) as the main project and several step-by-step photos. The ATC project is not discussed and serves merely as an example of what can be achieved with the technique. Including the main words in a technique article's name in a search should produce several other projects that made use of this technique.
