My Very 1st ATC!


My Very 1st ATC!
Originally uploaded by AlwaysInspired
After dabbling in papercrafts for a bit I've decided to give ATC's a whirl. I've made lots of inchies so I thought this would be fun. I'm so proud of my first ATC! I had bought blanks forever ago and they have sat untouched in a drawer. Untouched no more, I say! This is a blast! I used the wax collage technique. I layered papers, images, and text tinted with chalk pastels under layers of wax. I also added a bit of glitter just because. I used ink pads as well. It was so much fun I think I'll make many more! I have a collection of 2 ATC's from different artists and now I want to start swapping them to build up my collection! I would highly reccomend anyone to try making an ATC and see if they don't get hooked!

I plan to make more soon! I need to build up my paper goodie collection! Sadly it is very small. I have to use printed images most of the time.
