Wearable ATC

On 9ATC Group, the theme is Wearable ATCs. I decided to make a fabric brooch in the size of an ATC. Used a woven fabric for the base and added lace, a ribbon flower, some buttons, beads and a metal charm. Used embroidery floss to finish the edges.

New Year ATC

I took some previously made ATC backgrounds to make New Year Greeting ATCs to send to some friends. These included: alcohol inks-spray-perfect pearls, waterstamping, versamark resist,  wrinkle free distress , salt resist, water resist, and two pearlized gesso.

On all but the first, I stamped a floral image on the top and left side and brushed on gold perfect pearls. Colored the edges of the ATCs with a gold metal leafing pen.

Then printed out a vintage image to add each one along with the phrase Wishing you the happiest New Year ever" and added to the ATCs.

 Painted gold Perfect Pearls over black paper, cut out circles, and stamped with a moon image.
Tore page out of a book to add to the left side of the ATC. Colored the edge of the paper and the ATC with black chalk ink. Added the moon and a vintage image on top.
