Layers of Collage into an ATC


This ATC actually has a lot more work in it that is really obvious to the naked eye on your screen I daresay. There is actually 10 separate steps taken just to create the background before there is even a start on the finished and composed surface embellishing and they all have a secret hidden meaning. The words 'Hope' 'Delight' and 'Imagine' as used on another two ATC's below are a part of  a 9 in total series and refers to the tiny baby hidden in the collages and now showing in the backgrounds of these ATC's. Once you know they are there you don't have to look to hard. I have actually just uploaded the step by step process I took to create this layered background and they can be viewed in detail here just click on these words. This was a technique I learn't quite some time ago with Audery Underwood whilst doing a "SHE" journalling class which I must photograph and upload sometime soon.




The ATC 'Imagine' is actually avaiable as a swap on my Flickr Account at the moment if you would like it.

I again like the combination of vintage stamping and fresh colours. Someone who has done collage work will appreciate the work and different techniques that went into your little creations.
