A Month of ATCs

I've moved on from the Sketches, to my month of March activity - a month of ATCs.

I'm adding them to Facebook and Instagram, but here are some images of the collection I have started already. I'm hand coloring images from a vintage novelties catalog, adding washi tapes and some stickers adding what I consider an ironic commentary. The yellow highlight is what I consider the title of each piece.




















Some of the images and names of items in this old catalog are racist, and frightful. I'm not using those particular product listings for my ATCs, which are a little lighter in tone, with only a bit of eye-rolling. I may find a place in larger collages for that other material - or not.

Last Day of a Month of Scrapbook Sketches


A month has gone by, and while I didn't get to a sketch every single day, I did put out a fair few. Of course, now I will need to turn some of these sketches into cards and layouts. I'll probably never need to work up a sketch ever again. It was fun to practice with Canva also. They made it easy, to make things with a lot of colors. I may have gone overboard with that!

If you use any of the sketches for your own papercrafting, please let me know. Post an image on the Creativity Blast Facebook group.

Next month is going to be a Month of ATC's. I've done this before and been very pleased with the results. It's always nice to have some to use for trading when I go to events. An ATC make-and-trade event is always fun. I might even put up some printables. Stay tuned.

Another Sketch

I'm a little behind, but I still feel good about the sketches I've done. I envisage this one having some stitching and some layers of wash or vellum.

Card Sketch - Day 7

Here's a sketch for a card based on the page layout sketch from a few days ago. How else might this be used?
