Today I'm sharing this collage style atc. I made this for a pick-a-theme swap. Theme was horses. I used pattern scrapbook paper for my background. Pink paper and dots were also scrapbook paper. I added a used postage stamp and a horse cut out from a book to finish it.
For this ATC, the background is gelli print on school paper. The octopus was stamped and fussy cut. I added real sand on the bottom with cheesecloth and micro beads layered on top. Sequins and a shell embellishment were added as well. I outlined found words and inked the edges.
For this artist trading card I added real sand to the bottom. Cheesecloth was layered on top with a quote and sea shell embellishment. The lighthouse is a used postage stamp with the rays/beams made from painted modeling paste for added texture.
