atc x 6

I am a little behind with posting work so it feels like ages since i did these but wanted to share with you all. These are 6 atc's i made for a swap with DEB (rustycage ) and PATTIE .. both are excellent artists and i was thrilled to be able to be in a swap with them both.

From the top :
Patties chosen theme was BLUE TEXTURE ... I made the dragonfly with acrylic paint and crackle background plus glittery embossing and dragongly stamp and pen
The blue dreamer was made using an image i cut from magazine and altered with paints. Also painted with acrylics over lace and dyed string for the texture

The theme i chose was SOFTNESS ... My first with the vintage horsewoman was on textured card and i added and blended many chalks and pastels for the softness. My second one for this theme was a base of green felt then the image was added, the fur stole around her arms is made soft and fluffy using some 'white flock' and then i also added a mini harp and a feather for extra softness

Deb's theme was BALANCE .... I chose to use the yin yang as the focus for balance on the red atc. I also wanted something else to reflect the balance and colour so chose a tree stamp which i stamped in black stazon on the right then in white acrylic on the left over a patterned red card.
The other balance one was just a pair of dancing legs with the dancer 'balancing' on her toes. I used paints and pens in sakura and gel for this one on charcoal card which was inked and scribbled on in 'stardust sakura.

It was fun to tackle these themes and i hope to do more in the future

Hi June! Hope all's well in your world right now. These atcs are lovely. You brought through the feel of the theme in such a perfect way on each one of them! And I love the special little touches like the flock for the women's stole and painting over lace for texture. Beautiful!
