Artcreations Friday - use the Image provided and Saturday's workout - 9'ner ATCs
Here it is before I cut it into 9 atc's :)
And here are the ATC's cut and ready :)
I made another 9'er 'Miracles' after cutting the first one the wrong way and thereby destroying the middlesection. Here's my second try and I've used the wonderful image from Artcreations Friday in the upper left corner :)
How I did this:
I first made the 9'er in the previous post, that I cut in the wrong way and destroyed the cards in the mid section, so be very careful when cutting the finished piece into atc's :)
I first made the background with acrylic paint, stamps and stuff, look for a link to the tutorial under Tags in my sidebar.
To know where to place my images I made a transparency with the atc grid in black. I then chose the subject for my collage. and printed out images in the colours I wanted and started arrainging them on my measured 7,5 x 10,5 inch background paper using the grid.
Whenever happy with the position I glue down the image and try not to leave any disturbing edges, I used the eggs trying to make some kind of flow in my piece. I also printed out a map which I tore into pieces and arranged with the images on my background.
When I was happy with the result, I carefully :) cut it into atc's and used a black paint dabber around the edges.
My original thought was to put words on the atc's but I changed my mind, cause I love the images and didn't want to mess them up, at least not yet :)
Hope you found this helpful, I loved making these, so have a good time making yours!! Please let me know when you're done, I'd love to see your piece!!
Thanks for looking!!
