So awhile ago (like the beginning of the year) I created a list of ATC themes for myself. More like I had all these fantastic ideas and thought a ATC challenge would be awesome...
But...looking after a toddler, helping my sister with her wedding planning and invitations, house hold duties and participating in other swaps I haven't had the time or energy to put these ideas to paper.
So with the help of facebook, I sent out a message to one of my swap group pages hopeful that someone would want to do a one on one swap.
The theme I wanted to tackle was House/Home. I saw some great mixed media ideas using book paper and a collage like technique. So I was really excited that someone responded to my message.
I set a time frame which was the end of next month (October) But...the next day she private messaged me and said hers was ready to post!!!! Just what I needed to hear to get my creative gears in full swing!
So Jan, thank you so much for saying yes, my house themed ATC has been posted and I do hope you enjoy it. It was a little difficult to decide which one to send you, I kind of wanted to keep them both!
I hope I can create a few more like these as I really enjoy the 'collage' type technique and I think I'd like to participate in a few more one on one swaps too!
Here are my ATC:
If you would like some inspiration check out my mixed media pinterest board here. There are quite a few ideas on how to use book paper in your art!
