Hand drawn ATC

I hand drew this face from a picture in a book a long while back. It's one of those where you flip it over and it makes another face. The background was made using a stencil.

Blind draw faces - ATC's

Here are more blind draw artist trading cards. I made these for a swap in the past. We were to draw just the faces without looking and then finish the background & their bodies however we wish.

I've got my EYE on you ATC

I am back with another one of my 'eye' ATC's I made. This one turned out really cool too. 

I couldn't even bring myself to trade this one off, I like it so much. 

It's crumpled tissue paper with lots of paint and embossing powder around the eye. The eye came from a kit at Mischief Circus (formerly known as Deviant Scraps.) I used this eye on a similar ATC if you want to check it out, HERE is the link to my blog post. Pin It

Shattered Dream ATC

Here is an ATC that began with a gelli print background that I machine stitched. I added my words and butterfly. I used UTEE over the entire card and then broke it. I added heat embossing and staples.

'Eye' Exist heat embossed ATC

Happy Friday everyone! I'm back today with a couple artist trading cards that I made in the past and never posted to my blog. I have blogged about a similar ATC I done here before. You can see my original one here

The same techniques were used as in my first one. It's hard to see the depth of the eye, but the cards do have some dimension. I used tissue paper and lots of heat embossing.

Spread your wings and fly - Art Journal Spread

A while back I had the chance to play in this round robin art journal from Swap-Bot. It was my first time participating in a round robin journal. I must say, it is really fun!

For my background, I used lots of layers by adding stamping, textures, inks and paints. There's even some torn book page underneath it all.

Here are the finished pages.
Words, butterflies and washi tape were added.
Charcoal pencil outlining
Sprayed with a sealer.

This journal belongs to Ellie Patterson.
