I’m still enjoying making ATCs! (A little less frequent lately, but once I finish a swap, I plan to dive back into making lots more ATCs.)
These two were for @Cindy. She’s doing an alphabet theme. I made the I Spy one first, but wasn’t sure I liked it, so I made the flamingo. The I Spy is made from old paper ephemera (phonics worksheets, greeting cards, etc.)
The next one was also for @Cindy. It’s an Ambigram, a text-based art form where (a) rendered word(s) can be read at least two different ways. This one reads differently depending on which side of the card you are viewing.
The word itself is made from translucent kite paper, so that the light can shine through.
I did three cards that were altered vintage photographs. They were printed on ink-jet printer fabric, then embellished (mainly with embroidery).
For @roler, this daydreaming boy in a party hat…
…and “The Half-Shod Prince & His Phantasmogorical Steed”.
And for @curiousfae, this teen queen in sparkly eyeglasses.
For @bluebird’s egg theme, this shaped ATC made to resemble a pysanky egg.
For @Reinikka, an homage to VanGogh’s Starry Night.
I really enjoy working on black paper; the colors really pop!
Next up, a story card for @Bunny1kenobi. It’s a colored-pencil drawing depicting a memory of a drunk stranger wandering into my house during the night and falling asleep on our couch.
@bluebird had the theme “inspired by James Christensen”. I’d never heard of him, but really enjoyed researching about him and his work.
Next for @GeekyBookworm, a music-themed collage.
For @geekgirl for the masterboard swap:
For @thanate’s stone carving theme, this card coated with gel medium and then carved and painted.
And last for now, for @bluebird’s Harry Potter theme, Luna and a thestral.
The background of this one was actually made by @Edel; I re-purposed an envelope decoration she’d done.
