ATCs

Well, I'm still working at cleaning up my creating area and using up all the bits and parts from previous projects that I had left laying there... I could have just stuck them all in a drawer (like I've done in the past) but that drawer is pretty full and I decided it was either use them or toss them and there were too many good pieces to toss :-) Here are several atcs that I put together this past week, most of them made completely or at least partially with these left over pieces.

This first one uses part of a left over background stamped with Tim Holtz images. "Celebrate Today" is a Studio 490 stamp. The whole atc was dipped in hot beeswax and holeless gold beads added before the wax cooled.
The next one used a toilet paper casting I've had laying here a long time. I added brushed corduroy ink to the high spots and edges with my finger, then sprayed it with sunflower PP mixed in a mini mister, extra color added with chalks. The bird was a picture in some junk mail and I made a packing tape transfer with it.
The background on this atc is cut from a paper I had laying under where I was creating catching extra ink, paint, stamping. Stamps are Studio 490. The floral image is stamped on grungepaper, cut out, and Distress Stickles fired brick added.
A Tim Holtz image stamped on a tag with Archival ink, color added with Distress Ink... the tag was left over after working on a page swap and I cut it down to fit on an atc. I brushed over the definition with a Q-tip dipped in bleach .
Here we have another packing tape transfer. The saying is a Studio 490 stamp.
Here we have a gel medium transfer onto muslin. I cut her out using deckle edge scissors but it didn't really "cut", it more like frayed which worked very well. Added some brads, a word, and a heart epoxy sticker and then to finish it off added some Rock Candy stickles to two corners... awesome!!!
Paperbag Studios image stamped onto an alcohol ink background. Base is colored sprays sprayed through plastic canvas. "Celebrate Today" is Studio 490. Very glittery flowers.
The base is an old dictionary page colored with Distress inks and stamped along 2 edges. Main saying and dragonfly are Quietfire Design stamps.
Another Quietfire Design stamp. Background is Ecoline inks.
The heart is a toilet paper casting done on a rubber stamp. It's sprayed with sunflower gold PP mixed in a mini mister bottle. The background I can't remember exactly what was done... something put on a manila piece and then stamped into it. "Soar" from a dymo.
