ATC Love

Another week gone by and more wonderful ATCs  were submitted.

Does your mood affect your art or creations?   Do you allow it to come through in what you put onto paper or canvas?

Does your sadness or happiness reflect in your art?  Do you find it easier to be free in art than in life?  Do you create with abandon?   Sometimes you just have to let go!  

I have taken classes where the instructor had us close our eyes and paint (within reason!!) and others where you hold the brush by the very top of the handle and barely touch the surface.   


Exercises like these allow you to let go.   Try it sometime, who knows it could open a whole new world of creating for you! 




Using a loose painting method, I made these ATCs for this week.  I used several paint layers and stamps;
See all of our paints by clicking above.
Vintage text pages provided ideas for words
Dylusions Stamp and a random stash stamp were used as well.


Hope you enjoyed the ATCs....BUT let's find a winner!

Beautiful Ladies ATCs

Hi, two weeks ago I promised to share the complete altered pocket page with you that I was creating with unusual card bases.  Today, I have a lot of photos for you.  There is a long list of supplies so I'll list them at the end of the post.


There are nine ATC cards involved in the project, which means 18 different designs.  Here we go...



Card one: library book pocket




Card two: Shipping tag




Card three: library charge-out card




Card four: glassine envelope on card stock





Card five: standard playing card




Card six: double-wide card stock




Card seven and eight: front cover package from a Glitz paper pad






Card nine: coin envelope on card stock






And here are the cards inside the plastic pocket page.  The page is folded into three and fits inside a standard #10 envelope!
