This atc is inspired by a page in Somerset Studio Gallery Summer 2010. I was looking at the magazine this past week and when I saw some atcs made with screen I knew I had to try it. The artist in the magazine is Nathalie Thompson and I just found her blog here. So the base of this atc is only screen, no paper or chipboard or matboard or anything but the screen. After cutting the piece of screen (I used Tim Holtz tonic scissors) I painted it with Paint Dabbers )brown, blue and green)... let it dry and then painted it again to get deeper color. The collage image and "cherish" rubber stamp are from Quietfire Design. I've used lace, a metal label holder (I just can't think of the actual name), decorative brads, silk flowers, and some craft wire there in the upper right corner. I really enjoyed making this atc and I think I'll do a group of them for an in-person swap I'm attending at the end of this month.
