Once upon a time I could not get enough of making ATC's. I went through that phase for about a year. I loved the challenge of working on a small canvas and most importantly loved swapping them with others. But it seems that I have moved on from that and am keen to start working on larger items - eg Altered Books, canvas's, and so I haven't done an ATC for about 2 months now. These 2 ATC's attached were some of the last one's I've worked on and I must say that I love this stamp. Charlie was in actual fact a lot lighter in the 'flesh' but I have to admit to not being very clever with my scanner and so they have both come out looking rather dark. I am sure that one day in the near future, I'll go back to ATC's, but for now (once the fat book covers are finished) I am keen to start on bigger projects.

Wishing everyone a fantastic weekend.


  1. Hi Nat, I find myself in much the same boat. I like the ATC's for the contact with other artists and I can easily make a couple at the end of a long day, but they are not my passion at this point. That said I really like these Charlie ones. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Thanks Julie, I am hoping to make a few more canvas's soon. That seems to be where I want to travel next. IYKWIM. Am looking forward to playing around some more with the MM technique.

    Have a great weekend.


  3. Hi Nat

    I am feeling the same as you and Julie. I enjoy making ATC's and the connections I have made through them (you especially,and Dawnie and Julie) But am thoroughly enjoying doing altered books, art dolls and fat book swaps.
    I feel that ATC's introduced me to opening myself up to different forms of art.
    I do like your ' Charlie' ATC's though! And, you have inspired me try my hand at a few more this week.

    I am also looking forward to seeing some of your canvases.

    Hope you are having a good weekend too.

    P.S Jacky definitely wants to come to camp next June so hopefully you may be able to come too.
