Here we are in August and it's time to go on holiday. Travelling has been a firm favourite for centuries now and what could be better than to celebrate vintage travel in our ATCs. All techniques are welcome and mixed techniques are a special favourite of mine, so painting, collaging, fabric, stamping, stitching or whatever else you can think of, or in fact a combination of them. Keep in mind though that the cards have to look VINTAGE!
I made 5 ATCs: one for Frieda, one for Steven, and 3 for the swap! They are all based on photographs from Steven's family because I wanted them to have more meaning for me while making them. I used an old map as a background for the photos and blended 2 colors of paint together per Mary Green's instructions in Lesson 6 of Collage Coterie Online Workshop.
What do you think? Click for super-size ATCs!

They were traveling in MAINE, and those are all names
of towns there. Steven chose this one to keep. ; ^ )
He says he will use it as a bookmark!
|Steven has labelled this photo "Three days to Canada".|
