AEDM is officially over but I said I would share with you the things I did while I was gone. For several days, actually over a week, I worked on ATCs. I haven't done any in such a long time but it was fun to get out all my things and create some little cards.
Let me back up a little bit....part of the reason why I took a blog break was because my studio was in shambles! I could barely move in there and I knew it needed some serious attention. For the first three or four days of my break I did nothing but sort papers and magazine images! I threw out a ton of stuff and I still have way too much but at least it was a start.
So with very little time to create, ATCs came to mind. I made big sheets of paper and then cut the ATCs. Some of the papers were painted and some I used small paper scraps and just collaged them onto a base paper and then cut them to the appropriate size. That's why it took me so long to do them.
Here's just some of the ATCs I created for AEDM....
Some of these ATCs have backgrounds that I did quite some time ago but most of them are newer. I added stamps and words and other embellishments to finish them off.
One day I played around with ATC envelopes and made a few of those but quickly realized I didn't want to make too many of them....too much work!
So that's a little bit of what I did on my blog break. More to come. And now I'm going to get busy with some Christmas things. It's good to be back!
