I'm still making chunky ATCs. This isn't much different than making regular ATCs. It's just that the design goes down on a wood block. I used some new "feet" that I got in stock at Collage Stuff. I find these much more stable and sturdy than the dice I've used previously. The dice do add a nice touch of whimsy, but make the chunky ATC sort of unstable. I used images from Collage Stuff, Tumblefish Studio at deviantscrap.com and from Crow About Studio B at deviantscrap.com. The embellishments are from Collage Stuff. The wood block is from Collage Stuff. I took probably 50 photos to try to get some that looked like the real ATC in person and none of them are quite right. It's much more vibrant and clear in person. Try your hand at a chunky ATC! At the Collage Stuff Yahoo Group, there is a chunky ATC swap going on. There's plenty of time to participate!

I'm still having fun creating chunky ATCs! I used images from Tumble Fish Studio, Crow About Studio B and Holliewood Studios (deviantscrap.com website) and from Studio Tangie (scrapbookgraphics.com website). The embellishments, Victorian scrap fish, Tim Holtz alpha parts and wood block are from Collage Stuff. On the mermaid side at the bottom I added some Golden Gold Mica Flakes (small) to approximate sand. Thanks for stopping by and try a chunky ATC if you haven't already! It's fun!

This is the second chunky ATC that I've created. I love making these! I used images/embellishments/German scrap from Collage Stuff, images from the following stores at the deviantscrap.com website: Crow About Studio B, Tumblefish Studio, Hidden Vintage Studio and Holliewood Studios and images from the scrapbookgraphics.com website from Studio Tangie. That's out of the way now! I began by painting my wood block from Collage Stuff with metallic peridot paint. After that it was a matter of gluing down the images and embellishments with gel medium. I sealed the paper with gel medium before gluing down the embellishments. The curio knob at the top is cool, but it makes this chunky ATC a little top heavy. I painted the Tim Holtz alpha part number "2" with the same green paint. I like dice for feet, but you could use just about anything - wooden spools, beads, whatever. There is a chunky ATC swap posted at the Collage Stuff Yahoo Group. Swap details are in the files section and sign-ups take place in the database section. Thanks for stopping by!
