October Collage Stuff ATC Swap

Every month at the Collage Stuff yahoo group, we have an ATC swap. October's theme was "Vintage Children." I'm always the last one done with my ATC's. One reason this is true is because I don't know how many I need to make until all of swap ATC's come in. Usually, it's mid-month of the following month before all of the swap ATC's are in my hands. For the October swap, I need to make 14-16 ATC's. That means I have to have an ATC design that will go quickly so that I can replicate it over and over in one afternoon. It still has to be something I like though. Before I can swap the ATC's, I have to photograph or scan one ATC from each participant. Then I crop and size the photos and upload them to the Collage Stuff swaps page. Doing these swaps each month, takes a fair amount of time.

In the construction of this ATC, I used the following Collage Stuff products: Stylish Background Rubber Stamp, Samantha Collage Sheet, Nesting Collage Sheet, Cigar Trim Labels and a Brass Bird Nest Charm. I colored the Samantha image with my Copic markers.

Have you tried the Liquid Watercolors? You can buy them at any art supply store online - Dick Blick etc. I used the Gold Liquid Watercolor on this ATC. The Gold Liquid Watercolor is incredibly shiny.

Back to work on the ATC's!

New Collage Sheets

I know that many people like the Collage Stuff postcards, but haven't able to get all of them with orders. This is the second collage sheet of just Collage Stuff postcards. The girl at the top left - she was only a postcard in the sepia color. I almost had her printed in the lavendar tones, so I decided to include this variation on this collage sheet.
Here's a collage sheet that's made from the Christmas Dreams postcard. When I use these images, I'm going to color the girl with my Copic markers, It will give her a completely different look.

Second new postcard for today

Here's the second and last Christmas postcard for this year. I love this little girl image. She's adorable.
I decided that I liked this postcard so much, that I am having it printed like a real postcard you can send through the mail. The back will look like a divided postcard back, with a set of lines for the mail to address and etc. I'm having it printed as a mailable postcard and as a free postcard included with Collage Stuff orders. If you like this and you'd like to send this as a Christmas postcard, I'll have them in stock soon!

Christmas Postcard

The holidays are drawing near, so that means it's time to get some Christmas postcards done. The boy is from the Andrew Collage Sheet. He's a cute little guy!
