Cubist ATC

Here’s an ATC that was cheery and fun to put together. My inspiration came from a You Tube video by Dick Blick featuring the packs of blank ATCs available now in stores and online.  The video reminded me of how much fun cubist and abstract drawings are to create. I’ve been looking for some inspiration beyond vintage collage and scrapbook style ATCs. I used a rainbow ink pad as background and solid card stock collage shapes for the figure. The shiny parts you see were done with my “way cool” gel pens from Sakura.

This card was traded away in the Easy Swap we do at all of the First Christian Church’s Scrap & Stamp FUNdraiser . Join us for the next one on July 27, 2013. Email scrapfcc@verchat.org for reservations or information.

There's still time to sign up for the FREE wreath making workshop on March 9th in West Palm. Click here for details: http://www.artfultourist.blogspot.com/2013/02/freespring-wreath-workshop-at-first.html

Creativity honors the great Creator. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. My amazing church has had some great opportunities for creativity and we’re planning even more. In addition to our bi-annual Scrap & Stamp FUNdraiser (next one July 27, 2013) we are offering small group workshops FREE to members and the community. If you live in the area and would like to request a topic for an upcoming workshop please email me nachattin@nachattin.com  or scrapfcc@verchat.org
